Practical Engineers becoming teachers
A program which trains technological teachers for the education system, in collaboration with The Israeli Ordnance Corps, The Air Force and The Ministry of Education.
The severe shortage of technological teachers and the lack of a program for training technological teachers caused the Ministry of Education (influenced by Tzurim Association) to open this special program in it training groups of high level and experienced practical engineers to become certified teachers. This is a pedagogic, educational training program licensing them to become teachers and granting them an equal status to academic teacher with teacher’s certificates. The program is intended for practical engineers in standing army service in the IDF, enabling them to join the technological educational system, when they retire from the army.
