College of the Rockies is holding information sessions on September 29 for those interested in earning a Bachelor of Education degree in Cranbrook.

The first session will begin at 2:30 pm followed by a second session at 5:30 pm.  Both sessions will take place in Summit Hall, Room S208 at the College’s Cranbrook main campus and are open to potential students as well as parents.

Held in partnership with the University of Victoria, the East Kootenay Teacher Education program allows students to complete all four years of the Bachelor degree program at College of the Rockies’ main campus.  Upon completion of one year of University Studies courses, students apply to become UVIC students for the remainder of the program but continue to attend classes at the Cranbrook main campus.

East Kootenay Teacher Education program coordinator Sandi Lavery says, “Students in the Teacher Education program acquire the knowledge, skills and practical experience they need to be eligible to apply for a teaching certificate in BC or in other provinces and countries.  The program incorporates inquiry-based and project-based learning which is currently in high demand in the schools.”

“The majority of our graduates find work quickly after completing the program.  Many are employed in the northern part of the country while others have found work locally,” Lavery continues.

While attendees of the information session enjoy refreshments, representatives from the program will be on hand to discuss program details, prerequisites and admission requirements.
