Companies are interested in providing
Return to Industry
opportunities for YOU! Return to Industry is a
powerful program that benefits the educator and the
employer. Together both are able to learn.
Educators brush up on their knowledge and skills in
a specific industry and consequently bring those
skills and knowledge to the classroom. Employers
become better aware of today’s education system and
how they may be of assistance. Ultimately this
collaboration builds a stronger education system and
Scholarship money is provided upon application and
acceptance by Idaho’s Professional-Technical
Foundation to fund educators during their Return to
Industry. This experience may include placing a
metals/woods educator in a CNC manufacturing
facility or a business educator in a graphic arts
