The Wake County Public School system is hiring. It's looking for lifelong learning instructors for this summer's session. The instructors teach everything from how to start a home-based business, to learning a craft such as sewing, painting or graphic design, to becoming proficient with a computer application or foreign language.
According to a news release from the school system, "During an economic recession, the number of people enrolling in adult education programs increases as there is a high demand for skills that will add value to resumes and will provide tools for people to explore new business opportunities."
Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurs in Wake County are able to earn extra income by teaching classes through the WCPSS Community Services adult education program, Lifelong Learning with Community Schools.
Lifelong Learning is now accepting applications for summer instructors to teach a series of classes or one-day courses in the evenings for the summer session beginning in May. No degree is necessary, just a desirable level of field expertise. Instructors are not employees of the Wake County Public School System. They create their course then set their own class schedule, course duration, and student fees. Program participation requires instructors pay a small fee per student and instructors have unlimited income earning potential.
Wake County Public Schools' Lifelong Learning Program is offered at ten schools around the county with five of those sites available during the summer: Athens Drive High, Knightdale High, Millbrook High, Reedy Creek Middle and Sanderson High. Instructors can choose which school site they prefer, depending on availability.
To apply as a teacher applicants should complete a Course Intent Packet available online at http://cs.wcpss.net/lifelonglearning. Along with the Course Intent Packet, a resume and course outline are required.
Lifelong Learning invites all interested persons to apply, but the program is actively seeking teachers for specific courses in the areas of Basic Cooking Skills, Professional/Career Development, K-12 Teacher Continuing Education, and Guitar.
The deadline to apply is March 6, 2009. For more information, contact Natasha Baldwin-Garcia at 850-1830 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
