Training | Kelly Education


We are committed to having fully prepared, professionally and legally compliant substitute teachers and paraprofessionals.

Free pre-hire training

Our mandatory training program includes two substantive online modules covering the insights and skills substitute educators need to succeed in the classroom.

Paid post-hire orientation

We offer a paid, structured orientation for all substitute employees (instructional and non-instructional) that join our team. This training covers Kelly Education® employment and district-specific policies and procedures. Unlike many of our competitors, this is fully compliant with wage/hour regulations—and we absorb the cost.

Professional development

Our training modules focus on helping substitute educators create a positive learning environment and helping educators understand how students learn. This professional development is available to all Kelly Education substitute teachers at no charge.

In addition, all employees have access to The Kelly Learning Center, our online training portal that includes more than 6,000 self-paced or facilitated career development courses as well as 55,000 ebooks and publications available at no charge for our employees.
