Join the Westlake Team!

Westlake Charter School is excited to welcome members of our community to become a part of our team! Team opportunities are available year-round, and can include positions in our Before and After School program, working with students in the classroom, and even stepping into the role of becoming a substitute teacher!

Substitute Teaching Positions: Next Steps
Thank you for your interest in becoming a substitute teacher! Westlake will help guide you through the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) process to obtain the correct certifications. Key items that will be needed include:

1. Creating a free account on the CTC’s website: This video demonstrates a quick, step-by-step process on how to create your account;
2. Turning in official, sealed transcripts showing a BA/BS degree to Westlake;
3. Ensuring your fingerprints on file with Westlake; and
4. Passing the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST); Don’t worry, we’re here to support you on this as well!

Once the items above are complete, we’ll walk you through and help you complete the official application to become a substitute teacher.

NEW: Substitute Teacher Reimbursement Program

Westlake Charter School is reaching out to our community to encourage anyone with a Bachelor’s Degree to go through the process to become a substitute teacher. This process includes the cost of taking the CBEST test, ordering official transcripts, and the cost of fingerprinting. WCS will reimburse these costs, up to $200, for candidates who participates in this special recruitment process through September 30th, 2021. The first step is to email us to let us know your interest. We will guide you each step of the way, and when you begin working as a substitute with us, we will process your reimbursement.

Please email [email protected] and we’ll be glad to help guide you through the process. Thank you again for your interest, we’re excited to have you become part of our team!
