WVPEC holds an annual Regional Teacher Recruitment Job Fair supporting participating school divisions.
A consortium of dedicated professionals committed to improving educational programming and student success!
The Western Virginia Public Education Consortium (“WVPEC”) is composed of twenty school divisions in western Virginia. At the request of school superintendents, this confederation of school divisions was created by the Virginia legislature in 2001 and currently includes school divisions in the counties of Alleghany, Bath, Bland, Botetourt, Carroll, Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski, Roanoke and Wythe and in the cities of Covington, Martinsville, Radford, Roanoke and Salem.
WVPEC’s primary goal is to support educational programming and student success in each of these school divisions and throughout the region, as a whole.

Over twenty years ago, Philadelphia area career service departments in institutions of higher education decided to get together to exchange ideas. This effort to communicate brought about the formation of a group called the Delaware Valley Career Planners. To this day, the group meets twice a year at various campus sites to exchange ideas and listen to experts in career related fields. In 1993, those institutions with teacher education programs created an off-shoot called the Delaware Valley Education Consortium (DVEC).
The Consortium, composed of 27 Philadelphia institutions of higher education, exists solely for the purpose of sponsoring an annual teacher job fair. The Consortium has acted as an intermediary in the teacher job search process by providing candidates the opportunity to meet employers from not only the Delaware Valley but from employers across the United States. The DVEC sponsored its first teacher job fair on March 30, 1994. One hundred employers and 1,680 candidates participated in this first fair.
Only those previously registered may enter at 9:00 AM. For those not pre-registered, as part of the on site registration process, one resume will be collected from each candidate. You will be admitted to the Job Fair beginning at 10:00 AM.
