Workforce Solutions for Educators
A Message from the College of Education
[00:03] There’s so many great opportunities because education impacts every field. Everybody has a piece of making sure that that’s going to help better our world for the next generation; but also because we have adult education and training tracks, we are in large companies who have a variety of products that they produce. With adult education and training, typically companies will have a department or a few individuals that are trying to make sure that they’re providing training that helps further the company’s interests whatever they may be. [00:30]
[00:32] It’s important that the individuals that are in those roles, understand how do you—how do you create curriculum? How do you make sure that you’re assessing the needs of your learners? You may have a specific set of information that you’re trying to get across, but if you don’t know how to work with adult learners, and how to measure their success, and check for understanding along the way, you could be delivering information that’s not being well received. [00:52]
[00:54] Companies really want someone that is competent and capable of not only the content aspect, but also the delivery. So that program is really designed to help individuals be very, very proficient in the delivery of, and the creation of materials for training. So for an organization to make sure they’re spending training dollars wisely, that they’re getting a good return on investment, you want someone who has the qualifications to be successful in that environment. [01:17]
[01:19] I think one of the things that people don’t realize, about the College of Education that really differentiates us from others in the market, is the fact that we have programs that are designed to meet state and national standards, and we’ve actually sought approval and obtained approval across a variety of states. [01:33]
[01:34] I think that there’s a bigger way to think about the skill sets, within the College of Education, that really impact all sectors. And how do we take what we know to be the best practice in teaching learning assessment and help other people be successful across other fields. That’s an exciting place to be. [01:50]

Transform education from the inside out
Our nation needs educators who can lead a new generation of learners toward their potential. To do so, educators must have multidisciplinary knowledge, critical thinking skills and understand how to personalize lessons to engage all learners.
At University of Phoenix, we understand there’s no one-size fits all approach to the way students learn or to discovering what they’re most interested in learning. The same goes for your teachers and administrators.
That’s why we give school districts and individual schools options. Empower your educators to earn a degree or a certificate, or to take an individual for-credit course or a for-credit Continuing Teacher Education course.
No matter what option you choose, your staff will learn from experienced educators and administrators who understand the challenges facing education today.
Develop exemplary teachers and leaders
Quality teachers and administrators engage the people around them, help boost performance and make a tangible difference in peoples’ lives. It’s time to invest in the leaders responsible for producing students who can thrive in a globalized economy.
University of Phoenix is committed to preparing future K-12 educators and educational leaders to meet the challenges our nation’s schools face. We provide our students with rigorous academic quality and high standards, relevant instruction, and value-based outcomes.
