Apply Your Learning
Our teacher education program is based on the Professional Development School (PDS) model, which means that you will be immersed in the community and culture of your placement school. You will have five block practicum placements in schools, in addition to a weekly practicum day. In total, you’ll benefit from approximately 150 days of practicum experience.
Our partner school boards include Avon Maitland, Bluewater, Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic, Bruce Grey Catholic, Grand Erie, Halton, Halton Catholic, Hamilton-Wentworth, Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic, Huron-Perth Catholic, Upper Grand, Waterloo Catholic, Waterloo Region, and Wellington Catholic. Our partnerships provide you with extensive, in-depth, and sustained experiential learning experiences.
During Professional Learning Seminars, you will reflect on your learning, connect practice to theory, share the uniqueness of your school sites with your peers, and discuss the roles and responsibilities of being a teacher.
