  8. 8. • Teachers receive front line exposure on what Jobs are needed • Teachers receive workforce experience and effective Teacher preparedness • Teachers learn what the GAP is between the classroom and what the real world requires • Teachers can be a job resource for the community • Teachers can adjust curriculum and make it more relevant • Businesses develop a more reliant work force pool with better trained entry level employees for minimal cost. Benefits From Externships
  9. 9. • Teacher Externships often take place in the summer months and can last any amount of time. • Some companies pay a stipend, but not required. Transportation is up to teacher. Meals, give-a-ways and gift cards can be given in place • Both Parties meet prior and set guidelines for both parties and make sure they are met • Identify an employee who will serve as a mentor/supervisor • Guide externs not only in carrying out specific projects but also in understanding underlying goals and principles, such as total quality management, and continuous improvement. Key Consideration
  10. 10. • We don’t have any Corporate Contacts- Put key business partners on your local Academy Board that have influence. • We don’t have staff or time- This is just like a student job shadowing, only with teachers. Use same template. • We have strict union rules- Then have the teacher spend the day with a GM or Supervisor, shadowing their typical day. • We can’t afford it-Stipend is not mandatory. Offer Meals, give-a-ways or gift cards. The benefit off-sets the cost. • Take baby steps and start with two or three businesses at a time. It will gain momentum and grow with time. Possible Hurdles and How to Overcome
