Did you graduate from a French Immersion program or study French in High School? Have you lived in a French environment? If so, you may want to consider the French module of the PDP.
The French module focuses on issues specific to teaching in French and prepares student teachers to teach Core French, French Immersion or Programme Francophone at the elementary or secondary level.
School experiences and practica will take place throughout the Lower Mainland.
There are numerous benefits to teaching in French in British Columbia. In addition to exciting career prospects, the French module also offers a personalized learning experience with linguistic support, as well as a strong connection to the Francophone community.
In addition to one module based on Burnaby campus, an exciting partnership with the francophone school district, Le conseil scolaire francophone (CSF), is underway offering a community-based module based at École Anne-Hébert beginning Spring 2020.
Student teachers who participate in the French module may also be eligible for bursaries of up to $1,000 each.
To apply to the French module, student teachers must satisfy the PDP's elementary or secondary admission requirements. In addition, all French student teachers, including Francophone, must submit a French language assessment (DELF-DALF).
Please note there are only three DELF-DALF exam sessions offered each year. DELF-DALF exams must be booked early to avoid missing the PDP application deadline.
