The Teacher Education Office is responsible for the elementary and secondary teacher education programs. They coordinate all field experiences and practica for elementary, middle and secondary school teacher candidates.  

We work closely with local, provincial and international schools to coordinate practicum placements that afford teacher candidates a variety of experiences and perspectives. While on practicum, teacher candidates work with school-based mentors and university supervisors who assist with the support and evaluation of the practicum. We would like to thank our school-based education partners for mentoring teacher candidates.

The BC Teachers' Council has released the revised Professional Standards for BC Educators (formerly the TRB Standards). All teachers are governed by the ethics and principles outlined in these standards. We are pleased to see the addition of a ninth standard recognizing educators' responsibility towards truth, reconciliation and healing, and fostering understandings of ways of knowing and being, histories and cultures of First Nations, Metis and Inuit.
