These summer sessions are set to be a huge success. The summer Boot Camp programs provide customized opportunities for educators to explore the workforce development needs and opportunities in their respective communities. The experiences for teachers in the Manufacturing and Technology Boot Camp programs can be used to strengthen classroom career readiness connections that are embedded in core subject area instruction.

Amy Wood, Mid-Ohio ESC’s Director of Grants and Special Projects, stated, “Teachers are inherently our best career readiness advisors. Teacher Bootcamps are a meaningful way for teachers to enhance their understanding of the current landscape of local and regional career opportunities, and then use that knowledge to better integrate career-connected learning into their classrooms.”
