Penn GSE

Teacher Education Program

The teacher education program actively supports current students in building their careers, beginning with the alumni panel held during orientation and continuing with regular interaction with alumni who are teaching in Philadelphia and other urban environments, conversations with school district personnel and other educators, and regularly scheduled workshops with Penn’s Career Services. Faculty and mentors frequently write letters of support and guide students through the certification process. 

Penn’s Career Services

Career Services works with all Penn undergraduates, and most of the University's graduate and professional students. They help students and alumni define their career goals and take the steps necessary to achieve them. They also work with employers and graduate and professional schools interested in recruiting at Penn. They have a comprehensive website describing the various services they provide to students and, following graduation, to alumni as well, without charge, and without time limit.
