Teaching & Learning Careers Network
The need for highly skilled teachers is ever increasing. Class size reduction, the retirement of veteran teachers, and many other factors have led to a significant teacher shortage. Additionally, the skills required of teachers to meet the needs of students and communities, especially in areas such as technology, is rapidly changing.
The Teaching and Learning Careers Network aims to address teacher shortages by facilitating the hands-on education of tomorrow's teachers and other education professionals. This will be accomplished through building partnerships and programs at various schools throughout the Bay Area that have established or are planning career academies or pathways for teaching and learning careers. The Network has also established an interactive learning community to encourage communication between professionals and pre-service or potential educators in both existing and start-up programs.
Goals of the Teaching and Learning Careers Network include:
- Assisting academies in creating and implementing team and individual professional development plans
- Facilitating access to rich professional development opportunities for teachers and students
- Organizing professional learning networks among participating schools, higher education institutes, and community-based organizations
- Creating a community and culture of ongoing learning, through activities such as retreats and informal study groups
- Providing, as needed, technical assistance to academies with an educational focus
- Enhancing and enriching existing programs, partnerships, and academies in teaching and learning careers.
