Kelly Education and Teachers of Tomorrow are helping rebuild the nation’s teaching workforce. Teachers of Tomorrow is the leading alternative teacher certification provider in the United States and helps future educators attain formal teacher certification. As Teachers of Tomorrow candidates work toward earning certification, Kelly Education helps them gain valuable classroom experience working as substitute teachers. Upon program completion, Kelly Education places teachers in vacant positions at school districts across the country.
The program is available to any individual who possesses a bachelor’s degree (or higher) and meets the state-set minimum GPA requirement. Once enrolled, candidates gain immediate access to their online, self-paced curriculum and may begin their training while continuing to work as a Kelly Education substitute teacher. After successfully completing all Teachers of Tomorrow program requirements, candidates are eligible to earn their official teaching certification.
“Every day I meet passionate professionals who want so much to teach — nurses, lab technicians, accountants, engineers — people who would bring a wealth of experience to the classroom. But without a flexible and proven pathway to becoming a certified teacher, most cannot afford to switch careers,” said Nicola Soares, president of Kelly Education. “With our Teachers of Tomorrow partnership, in as little as one year, individuals with a bachelor’s degree and a love of learning can start a fulfilling new career in education.”
Prior to the pandemic, the nation faced an increasing trend around teacher vacancies, with teachers retiring earlier and mid-career teachers leaving the field. “As the pandemic continues to put additional strains on our education system and creates learning loss for students across the country, we are proud to partner with Kelly Education on this solution to prepare talented individuals for teaching positions to ensure that every child has a great teacher. We offer guidance and coaching for future educators throughout the entire certification process while meeting the specific needs of each state’s system,” said Phillip Braithwaite, CEO, Teachers of Tomorrow.
Kelly Education and Teachers of Tomorrow’s program is open to recent college graduates, career-changers, educators seeking formal certification, and aspiring teachers. Working together, both companies help individuals embark on a new, rewarding teaching career.
