Upcoming Webinars: Job Hunting After the BEd and ON Alliance of Black School Educators

WEBINAR: Job Hunting After the BEd

Job Hunting After the BEd
Thursday, April 15, 2021
12 to 1 pm

Presented by Colin Pierce, LTO in Upper Grand DSB and Western BEd Alumni (2020)

Back by popular demand! This session was held during ESC’s Conference Week for Year 1 Teacher Candidates in February 2021. By request, a second session has been scheduled to better align with Year 2 TC availability. All TCs are welcome to attend!

This session will help candidates understand how to navigate the early years in your teaching career after you graduate. This includes the transition into substitute teaching, long term occasional jobs, additional qualifications, and more. Many of the questions the speaker will be answering in this session will include: How do I market myself to school boards? What does the job market look like right now? How do I apply to occasional teaching and long-term occasional teaching positions? What are school boards looking for in applications and interviews? What do I do after I get a job? What are the steps needed to receive supply calls? I’m excited to speak with everyone and be a part of conference week!

This session will be presented by Colin Pierce, who is a Western Faculty of Education Graduate (2020) and is on his first LTO at John F. Ross CVI in Guelph, Ontario. Colin is an intermediate/senior teacher with teachables in biology and general science. He has also just completed two additional basic qualifications (ABQs) in senior chemistry and senior business. He is teaching grade 12 chemistry and grade 12 health sciences now on his first LTO. Colin is also an instructor for the Canadian Synthetic Biology Education Research Group (CSBERG) and is the co-founder of M&P insights, a data science education technology start-up company. You can reach out to Colin on twitter at @MrCPierce.
