Professional Development Program
Explore Your Inner Teacher
The Professional Development Program (PDP), is SFU's full-time, post-degree teacher education program.
Through the integration of theory and practice, the PDP prepares student teachers to enter the teaching profession by exploring important educational ideas and their application in the classroom.
Student teachers who successfully complete the PDP are recommended to the Teacher Regulation Branch of the BC Ministry of Education for a Teaching Certificate. There is also an option to complete a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) as a second degree during the program.
Since 1965, the PDP has helped to develop over 20,000 teachers in British Columbia.
