Educate Minnesota for School-Employers

Welcome to the Educate Minnesota, the online recruiting system designed to help public schools in find current and aspiring educators seeking employment.  Educate Minnesota is part of the Minnesota Educator Recruitment Center, an effort to meet current and future staffing needs in Minnesota.  More about this project.

 

Why does it work?

We believe that building the pipeline of talented educators for current and future staffing needs must include two key components:

  • Actively engaging with job seekers using proven and new approaches to recruiting.
  • Developing partnerships and pathways that allow for the development of the talent that students need.

Only when schools recruit differently will there be the possibility of achieving different results when it comes to attracting talent.

 

For the individual employer, partnering with Educate Minnesota means having wider distribution of job postings, engaging with job seekers through new channels such as social media and Handshake events, and establishing relationships with the educator preparation providers and workforce development programs in your area.    The result is an increased and more diverse applicant pool for your educator jobs, and new relationships with programs that produce talent for the future.

 

For all Minnesota schools, the Minnesota Educator Recruitment Center adds to the collective efforts to engage and improve the educator workforce.  This includes initiatives to: improve the quality student teaching and educator field experience, help prepare new professionals as they first enter the field, increase awareness and participation in diversity and inclusion initiatives, and pathways to teaching programs.

 

 

Educate Minnesota is currently accepting new employer participants through our 2020 hiring season Virtual Recruiting Network.  If you have other questions about the project, or would like to talk more about how to get involved, please contact Chris Hoehn.

School-Employers are able to access portions of Educate Minnesota through the 2020 Virtual Recruiting Networks for Educators and Support staff.
