MASA EdTalks: Statewide Apprenticeship Competencies & Programs
MASA EdTalks Statewide Apprenticeship Competencies & Programs Co-sponsored by MASA and the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD)
School leaders are invited to attend two MASA EdTalks sessions on the topic of Statewide Apprenticeship Competences and Programs hosted by Kathlene Holmes Campbell, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer for the National Center for Teacher Residencies (NCTR) and Alex Liuzzi, Former Executive Director of the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB).
What will we talk about? Minnesota is ready to start building their first registered teacher apprenticeship programs. These programs are employer-led apprenticeships where employees of the district meet licensure standards through job-embedded application of the standards. Because teaching is a new profession for apprenticeships, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) needs the education stakeholders in Minnesota to identify what the core competencies of the profession should be.
Who should come? At this point in the process, we welcome all members of your organization. Teachers, paraprofessionals, school leaders, district staff, preparation providers - all are welcome.
