Teacher in the Workplace

The Teacher In The Workplace grant program helps connect educators with local business leaders and employers, bridging the gap between the classroom and industry.

Through this program, kindergarten through postsecondary educators, counselors, and administrators learn more about industry trends, needs, and opportunities – which supports and enhances college and career preparations in classrooms across Pennsylvania.


Teacher in the Workplace grants provide the opportunity for eligible organizations – in partnership with their Local Workforce Development Board – to develop and/or implement Teacher in the Workplace programs.

On January 6, Governor Tom Wolf announced $2.2 million in Teacher in the Workplace grants had been awarded to 92 local education agencies (LEAs) to enable teachers to visit local employers and learn the skills and industry trends to enhance their classroom instruction, student learning, and career readiness. Each LEA will receive a $25,000 Targeted Grant. Learn more about these grants and view a list of the recipients.
