The need for young, eager teachers is leading colleges like Viterbo University and Western Technical College to change the way they do business.
The two have announced a transfer partnership, where Western Foundation to Education students could move right into Viterbo’s early and middle childhood education programs as juniors, after they graduated from WTC.
WTC’s Diane Neefe said if you’re a recent graduate thinking about advancing your career in that field, come on back.
“Anybody that’s graduated, even like three years ago, when we didn’t have this assigned, theoretically they should be able to take advantage of this agreement,” she said.
Neefe says the education profession can’t afford to have colleges operating like they always have.
“All two-year and four-year higher ed. institutions need to look at new ways of doing business,” she said.
Almost half of the previous graduating WTC class has already been accepted into Viterbo.
