Keystone College’s Learn and Earn Educational Program (LEEP) addresses the need for substitute teachers and the declining number of teacher certifications. This “earn and learn” educational training model helps individuals with a bachelor’s degree but without a teaching certification to work in a partnering school district with an emergency substitute certification and gain teaching credentials on the job.

This learning model will allow participants to gain teaching credentials through everyday experience in a primary or secondary school rather than in a traditional college classroom setting. Participating school districts include Dunmore, Valley View, Nanticoke, Riverside, Western Wayne, Dallas, Pottsville, Hazelton, Hanover Area, and Lakeland.
