Train and screen your substitute teachers prior to employment with the 8-10 hour SubSkills Online or Live Training course. This university-based course provides the skills for classroom management and the techniques to implement a lesson plan left by the permanent teacher, plus a lot, lot more.
By rewarding individuals who step up on their own and take the training by hiring them first or giving them preferred placement on jobs, substitute teachers will be more than willing to invest in training. The substitute teacher wins with better skills to enjoy the day, you win with fewer complaints and a better prepared staff, and most of all, the students win by not loosing a valuable day!
Developed at the Substitute Teaching Institute at Utah State University, SubSkills is a must for every non-certified substitute teacher.
