WBTV News is covering the ongoing story of staff shortages and workforce development across all industries, including education. Yesterday, reporter Courtney Cole visited Charlotte Bilingual Preschool to talk about our staffing. Executive Director Banu Valladares confirmed we have only one teacher opening at present, but “we’re always actively recruiting from current and former families for bilingual staff. …Part of this is because we have been working with families and building our workforce development plan around them.” Watch the full video here.
Forty-seven people from the CltBP family community are currently enrolled with Central Piedmont through CltBP’s “Family Program,” and 17 of CltBP’s current team members have participated in our Workforce Development Programs.
CltBP is grateful for our partnership with CPCC and the generous donors who are supporting our Workforce Development Program. CltBP teachers are helping our children prepare for their bright futures!
