Teacher Education – Aboriginal Education

Bachelor of Education Primary/Junior (Aboriginal)

The Faculty of Education offers a Bachelor of Education degree for students interested in teaching at the Primary/Junior level (grades K-6).

Program Description

The program incorporates Aboriginal learning preferences and cultural diversity and is designed for those who live in, and want to teach in, northern First-Nations communities.  This culturally responsive 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.

Successful graduates will receive a Bachelor of Education degree. Upon successful completion of a teacher education program, teacher candidates are normally recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for membership and to receive their Ontario Certificate of Qualification.
