Workforce Solutions for Educators

A Message from the College of Education


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 P-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. We offer initial bachelor’s and master’s degree programs that prepare students to become a teacher as well as advanced master’s degree programs for experienced educators.

Our curriculum utilizes peer-to-peer learning led by experienced faculty in a collaborative team environment. And students are empowered to share and directly apply their professional experience.

Contact us to learn more about our programs, how your employees can take classes together throughout their degree program, and other ways we can provide you with customized learning solutions that meet your school or district’s objectives.
