Bachelor of Education Primary/Junior (Aboriginal)
The Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education offers a Bachelor of Education degree for students interested in teaching at the Primary/Junior level (grades K-6).
The program incorporates Aboriginal learning preferences and cultural diversity. This community-based curriculum model relies on qualified local Aboriginal educators to facilitate the learner’s educational journey. Courses are offered in a facilitated learning cohort model, face-to-face or online.
