The Educator Workforce Academy is a year-long training program for educators in West Alabama, exposing them to workforce development and our region’s industries. Established in 2017 by West Alabama Works, the Academy is designed to eliminate the disconnection between industry and education, giving our region’s students the best chance possible for success.

West Alabama has many competitive industry careers, but before the Educator Workforce Academy, most of our region’s educators hadn’t toured a plant. The Educator Workforce Academy helps connect our educators to jobs for our region’s students. Some of these jobs require four-year degrees, while many require a two-year degree or on-the-job training. Regardless, we’re eliminating the disconnect between industry and education."
