Benefits of Certification
Enrichment teacher certification is fast becoming the industry standard. Certified enrichment teachers protect children’s well-being while enriching their education. Certification facilities best practice in which exposure to risk is limited and educational growth is maximized. The benefits of including a NETA certification on your resume are far reaching:
Certified enrichment teachers elevate the stature of school programs. According to the Department of Labor, as of 2006 there were 266,000 enrichment teachers working in the United States. Parents demand quality assurance and accountability of the enrichment teachers placed at their schools. Only through regulating the quality of the teaching staff through certification can parents be assured of the highest standards of safety for their children.
NETA is your advocate in the enrichment industry. NETA provides a nationwide enrichment community with access to newsletters, discounts on NETA resources and, coming in 2010, a database of certified enrichment teachers and enrichment job listings.
