HELPING EASE ACCESS FOR RETURNING TEACHERS
The Helping Ease Access for Returning Teachers (HEART) program supports teachers who need to recertify or acts as a refresher program for teachers who have been out of the classroom for a period of time. This EDUC 406 option within Professional Programs is a supervised orientation/observation and teaching sequence of about ten weeks in a BC public school. This practicum offers educators an opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the BC school system and to update teaching skills to acquire certification from the Teacher Regulation Branch (TRB) of the BC Ministry of Education. Prospective students are encouraged to contact the TRB to see if this course of study is right for them.
