PROFESSIONAL LINKING PROGRAM (PLP)
The Professional Linking Program (PLP) is a unique teacher education program that enables working paraprofessionals; student support workers; para-educators (e.g., education assistants, child and youth care workers, counselors, settlement workers); independent schools educators; Francophone teachers working with letters of permission to become certified as teachers in British Columbia. The Professional Linking Program is unique in that it enables participants to pursue certification while continuing to work in their current positions for all but the long-practicum semester.
Applicants must have a minimum of two years of experience, at the time of application, in their current roles and preference will be given to those working with children and youth at the grade level they wish to teach. Those accepted to PLP are required to be employed a minimum of 3 days a week in a school setting working with children and youth at the grade level they wish to teach and at the level for which they have been accepted when the program starts.
