As part of our ongoing blog series examining companies that make up the Pluribus family, today we take a closer look at the Kesson Group. The Kesson Group operates in the eLearning sector and helps teachers and school districts in various ways. First, it provides aspiring teachers with new and affordable ways to get a teaching license. Once that is done, the Kesson Group then connects them directly with employment opportunities in top schools in their area. This, in turn, helps relieve the pressure on school districts struggling to find enough teachers for classrooms. But how does the Kesson Group manage these programs? Through technology. The Kesson Group essentially uses three distinct pieces of technology to serve the needs of teachers, students and schools. Let's look at each one individually.

Klassroom forms the third pillar of the Kesson Group's eLearning strategy. Klassroom offers a nationally accredited, state-approved alternative teacher licensure program. Their Teacher Certification Program (TCP) is for individuals who want to become teachers. They are always certifying, developing, and placing amazing teachers in front of eager students in classrooms around the country. Even better, Klassroom offers TCP classes fully online. That way learners can study on their own schedule. Flexibility is key and Klassroom offers just that. Through their program, learners can work while they earn a teaching license. In turn, this removes barriers for aspiring teachers and ensures resources are available for students and school districts.
Through the power of these three services and their attendant systems, the Kesson Group works hard to achieve a worthy goal: Ensuring every student has access to an excellent teacher. Once done, the Kesson Group connects them directly with employment at top schools and districts through its proprietary and easy-to-use hiring platform. The Kesson Group provides individuals and companies with an international team of education experts who have a history of strong relationships with academic institutions and local and state agencies.
