Educator Workforce

Educator Workforce

CFEWP is working internally and with partners in states to advance conversations about two critical questions:

  1. How can states elevate the teaching profession to recruit and retain great teachers who advance and improve outcomes for all kids?
  2. What policy, system or practices best support these efforts and align state efforts with the needs of students?

To address these questions, we work with states and stakeholders to examine, develop recommendations and pilots to address challenges or opportunities in relevant policies, systems and workforce conditions.

  • Our work with states is focused in three general areas:
    Elevating the Teaching Profession;
  • Educator Preparation, Certification & Early Career Support;
  • Teacher Roles, Career Pathways & Workforce Design.

Our Focus Areas

CFEWP partners with state and local leaders nationally to help find common higher ground and improve outcomes for kids.

The CFEWP team has been leading conversations across the country about how to re-imagine the role of teacher and the educator workforce from educator preparation through career pathways.

CFEWP's Career Readiness Initiative helps education leaders collaborate with the private sector to ensure students are exposed to a wide array of career paths and opportunities to develop the skills to succeed.

Instructional Innovations

We help leaders and communities advance bold changes to how educators deliver instruction and students learn to focus on improving outcomes for all students.

Opportunity Access

CFEWP helps leaders and communities ensure all students have equitable access to the full diversity of education programs, courses and opportunities.

Workforce Alignment

By bringing together workforce data and leaders with educators, families and the workforce, we help states and communities ensure K-12, post-secondary and job training programs are aligned with today's and tomorrow's workforce needs.

State Policies & Systems

CFEWP helps stakeholders and leaders design, advance and implement new systems with efficacy, fidelity and efficiency to advance their vision.
