Teacher in the Workplace Grants

The Teacher in the Workplace (TIW) program provides the opportunity for eligible organizations in partnership with their Local Workforce Development Board (LWDB) to develop and/or implement TIW programs that connect the classroom to the workplace for K-12 educators in Pennsylvania.

Through the TIW program, teachers, counselors and administrators are provided experiences interacting directly with industry and business leaders to learn about industry trends, needs and opportunities to enhance their classroom instruction, student learning and career readiness.

The TIW program is a $2.6 million grant investment to partner educators with local businesses to share and exchange information that can then be used to enhance students’ classroom instruction. The TIW grants are funded through federal money made available from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act.

In April 2019, L&I awarded 59 TIW grants through LWDBs across Pennsylvania.
