Education application reading day a success
The leaders of Trent University’s education programs were pleased with the application reading day held on Friday, February 28.
Applications were assessed for both the Queen’s-Trent Concurrent Teacher Education Program and the Trent Consecutive Teacher Education Program. Representatives from both local boards of education, and from the Trent community, volunteered to spend the day reading applicant profiles and corresponding documents. All applications were scored by at least two readers.
This was the first year Trent has accepted consecutive education applications. The new program, under the new School of Education and Professional Learning at Trent, will be launched in September 2003.
Deb Gelderland, a member of the Queen’s-Trent Concurrent Education Program team, reported that 1,900 applications had been received for 140 concurrent education spaces.
Deborah Berrill, director of Trent’s School of Education and Professional Learning, said that 2,770 applications had been received for the consecutive education program, 340 for part-time and 2,430 for full-time. A total of 155 spots are available for September 2003.
The interest in Trent’s education programs reflects the solid reputation of the University in delivering quality teacher training. For more information about education opportunities at Trent visit www.trentu.ca/education.
