Educator Career Framework
This Educator Career Framework offers a menu of suggested activities to help middle and high school students learn more about themselves and think about a career in teaching.

This is a tool to guide the implementation of a career development continuum to interest students in teaching careers. This is accomplished through a series of classroom and club activities, a variety of job-related exposures and community experiences.

The Framework is designed for use by:

Students – find inspiration and activities that will help them learn what teaching is all about and inform their decision to become a teacher.

Families – help their child discover their passion for teaching; identify learning opportunities and experiences to support their child’s pathway into an education career.

Educators – teach skills, knowledge and capabilities related to the teaching profession and becoming a teacher; use strategies that can be integrated into required class activities.

TALAT Club Coordinator – plan and implement a sequence of club activities and experiences for students across grade levels and across the career development continuum: awareness, exploration and immersion.

Community Groups – place students in authentic environments to engage in some of the activities and experiences described in the Framework.

Higher Education – collaborate with K-12 and community partners to create and expand opportunities for students that will develop personal and professional skills and support their journey into teaching.
