Summer Educator In-Service
Education & Workforce Development holds an educator in-service opportunity for teachers, counselors and administrators of the Greeneville and Greene County school systems each summer. The in-service includes tours of businesses and industries and meetings with plant managers, company presidents, and human resource and training representatives. The purpose of this program is to offer insight into what the industry and manufacturing sector is looking for in future employees, as well as give the host companies an opportunity to express their ideas and concerns regarding students and education with the educators themselves. Discussions cover issues such as skills needed in today’s workforce and how those skill needs will change in the next five years, job availability, changing technologies, and work ethic.
This free in-service is a day-long event, with one facility tour in the morning and another in the afternoon. The program is accepted by both local schools systems and qualifies for professional development credit. The Partnership offers this in-service as a continuing effort to provide better communication between the world of education and the world of work.
Next In-Service Date: TBA
