Our program is designed to work in conjunction with your employer.  Your employer will assist you with application paperwork and in most cases, provide your mentor teacher.

It is necessary for your employer to have a Memorandum of Understanding in place with our program. Please talk with either your administrator or district Credential Technician to see if they are currently a program partner.  If they are not yet a partner employer, please ask your Human Resources personnel to contact our office. 

 

So... Just what is Adult Education?

Adult education programs offer their communities both state-supported general education courses and community education fee-based classes. State-supported classes can include GED/diploma preparation, English as second language and citizenship courses, parent education, vocational education, and courses for older adults. Community education classes cover a wide selection of interests from art, music and dance, to languages, business and finance, and computer education.

What will I be teaching?

Adult education offers state-supported general education instruction in many areas including:

  • ‚ÄčElementary Basic Skills
  • English as a Second Language
  • High School Subjects
  • Citizenship
  • Parent Education
  • ‚ÄčHealth & Safety Education
  • Adults with Disabilities
  • Career Technical Education
  • Older Adult Programs
  • Home Economics Education

Standardized outlines are available for most courses. These are your guidelines for developing your course curriculum. 

Community Education course subjects are numerous and varied. They are developed to reflect the needs and interests of the community their program serves. 

Can I turn my love of art into a class for adults?

Yes.Adult education programs are always looking for new and innovative courses to offer in their Community Education classes, classes that suit both the students' desires and learning styles.

School districts within San Diego County are always looking for qualified instructors to teach in their Adult Education programs. They are seeking individuals with diverse backgrounds who will guarantee adult learners the possibility to develop their unique potential. That just might be you! 

 

Finding a Job

Employment within San Diego County

San Diego is an extremely decentralized county. All employment decisions (including: but not limited to, hiring, the employment process, and salary schedules) are made locally by individual school districts. To inquire about teaching, please contact the administrator in the school district(s) for which you wish to teach.

Once you are offered either a substitute position or your own class, the district administrator will refer you to a Credential Technician in their Human Resources department. That technician will assist you with your employment paperwork and your credential paperwork at the same time.

Outside San Diego County

If you are interested in teaching outside of San Diego County the process is very much same. Contact the school districts and/or other employers you are interested in teaching for. Again, once you are offered either a substitute position or your own class, the district administrator will refer you to a Credential Technician in their Human Resources department. That technician will assist you with your employment paperwork and your credential paperwork at the same time.
