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 emphasizes Indigenous learning preferences, focusing on Turtle Island Indigenous cultures and issues. Courses are offered in a blended model (facilitated digital and face-to-face) for students from selected remote First Nation locations in northern Ontario.

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.
