WEDDINGTON – Union County Public Schools will host career fairs for prospective teachers and non-instructional staff April 6 that will allow candidates the opportunity to interview for positions on the spot.
The teacher fair takes place 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by the career fair for non-instructional positions from 2 to 4 p.m. Both events will be held at Weddington High, 4901 Monroe-Weddington Road.
During the teacher fair, candidates will receive information about how they could earn up to an additional $20,000 per year through the EPIC Grant. They’ll also learn about the district’s local supplement and support provided to beginning teachers, as well as opportunities for advancement through a partnership between UCPS and Wingate University.
Candidates interested in pursuing non-instructional careers will have the opportunity to interview for available positions in the district’s after-school, facilities, nutrition and transportation departments.
There is no cost to attend either fair. Prospective teachers can register in advance on the UCPS website.
