How can I support Workplace Learning?

There are three ways you can support workplace learning: by hosting high school interns, hosting SCPS teachers or hosting a job shadow.

Graduates of Seminole County Public Schools will be your future neighbors, co-workers and fellow citizens. Our current students need opportunities to deepen their classroom learning by applying their skills, passions and interests to authentic workplace experiences. Students benefit from early exposure to the world of work, and employers enjoy the energy and enthusiasm that students, interns, and teachers bring to their business.

SCPS needs employers to provide opportunities for students and teachers to experience the workplace.  Please complete the following interest form so that we can connect you to opportunities that meet your business or community group’s interests.

  • Each summer, employers from across central Florida invite our teachers to spend time exploring their business and industry to demonstrate what they are looking for in future employees.

  • Teachers leave with a broader understanding of how to prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow.

  • You can also offer one or more teachers a more in-depth experience through a teacher externship. Contact ePathways to coordinate this opportunity.

Step 2: Learn More about Hosting a Job Shadow

  • Due to the nature of some industries, a long-term internship may not be feasible for all students.  In this case, consider inviting students for a short-term job shadow where they can participate in an overview of your industry and company practices.
