Occupational Awareness Courses
As true business and educational partners, NFIEC courses offer educators in the Western New York community occupational awareness programs through discussions, presentations, and tours. Teachers can earn in-service credit while learning about the WNY Community. Educators attend meetings at various businesses, industry or other locations throughout the region. Many of the business leaders are eager to share their real-life knowledge of what skills and characteristics they are looking for to create successful employees. In turn, the educators take these experiences back to the classroom and incorporate this knowledge into their lessons. Teachers and students not only learn about careers, but they also learn about all the great things Western New York has to offer.
