About the Educator Industry Partnership Series

The Educator Industry Partnership Series is sponsored through a partnership between Portland Public Schools and the Portland Workforce Alliance

Many rewarding careers in business, industry and governmental organizations - and the requirements for entering these fields - are relatively unknown to teachers, counselors and administrators.  The Educator Industry Partnership Series provides an opportunity for school staff to:
  • Observe different jobs and careers firsthand
  • Ask questions
  • Gain direct knowledge of workplace practices
 Educators who see applications of academic, career/technical and personal skills can use the new knowledge to inform and motivate students to learn and help them prepare for their next steps after high school.
