When will I receive my practicum placement?
Year 2 Teacher Candidates: The Practicum Database will open later today. Log in later this afternoon to see where you will be heading on Tuesday, February 19, 2019.
We’ve finalized practicum placements with almost 30 school boards but there are a couple boards that we’re still waiting on. These additional practicum placements will be added to the Practicum Database as soon as we receive them.
Year 1 Teacher Candidates: The Year 1, Block 2 Practicum is scheduled to start on Monday, March 25, 2019. These practicum placements are in progress and will be finalized mid-March. We’ll give you a heads up when the Practicum Database is scheduled to open for Year 1 practicum placements.
How should I prepare for practicum?
Each school board has their own specific requirements teacher candidates must fulfill in order to complete a practicum in that board. Remember to review the School Board Requirements online well in advance of the practicum.
For information on practicum expectations, guidelines and attendance policies, review the Practicum Handbook online here.
