A teachers pathway begins by taking courses like Leadership and Peer support, Cooperative Education, and courses related to the subject they would want to teach. These first two courses provide valuable experience being in a classroom and having leadership. After graduating, the student must continue their schooling at a University in order to earn a Bachelor of Education (2 year program) and a Bachelor of any other subject (3-4 year program) based on what subjects they want to teach.
The student will decide on a concurrent program- when they know they want to be a teacher and gain both Bachelor’s at the same time- or a consecutive program- where they receive their Bachelor Degree first and then apply to get their Bachelor of Education. They must also choose which ages they want to teach, primary/junior, junior/intermediate, intermediate/senior and this choice with also focus their pathway on what courses they take.
This career is stressful through being in the spotlight, however, rewarding when seeing students succeed.
