The Consecutive Bachelor of Education program is a highly collaborative, hands-on program that pays particular attention to the individual learner, in small class settings with a community-based approach. Working closely with Trent University’s Faculty of Arts and Science, the First People’s House of Learning, and educators in the wider community, teacher candidates leave the program with a mindset to make education a transformative experience.
Through their university credits in foundational and curriculum courses, students are exposed to recent advances in theory and research. During their classroom placements they are encouraged to use this expertise to think critically about their own professional practice and to develop a professional identity through attention to individual needs, multiple modes of learning, human diversity, and critical thinking in content areas.
Programs of study are offered in full-time format, for students interested in teaching at the Primary/Junior level (K-Grade 6) and at the Intermediate/Senior level (Grades 7-12).
The program is two years in length, running from late August until mid-April each year. Teaching subjects at the Intermediate/Senior levels include: Biology, Chemistry, Dramatic Arts, English, Environmental Science, French as a Second Language, Geography, Health and Physical Education, History, Mathematics, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Studies, Anishnaabemowin (Ojibwe), Physics and Visual Arts.
