Educator in the Workplace
The Educator in the Workplace Programs were created by the Regional Career Education Partnerships for Youth (RCEPs). RCEPs serve as intermediaries by creating connections between schools, employers, students and through the promotion of enhanced opportunities for all Pennsylvania young people.
Working toward achieving the goal of the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board's Council for the Workforce of Tomorrow and recommendations emanating directly from its subcommittee tasked with providing High-Level Professional Development and Support for Teachers and Counselors, the collection of these models are a direct result of those efforts to bring a workforce/career development perspective and to enhance academic relevance.
The implementation of this work was a collaborative effort between the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
