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 at locations across the province.

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.

For further information contact the Administrative Co-ordinator.


Candidates may be admitted with at least Grade 12 standing. Preference will be given to those with some post secondary experience.
