At the beginning of the BEd program, the Faculty of Education arranges a program orientation to welcome newly admitted teacher candidates.

All teacher candidates are expected to attend their specifically designed orientation activities which include a general orientation for all BEd program options. This session will outline important information regarding expectations, assistance available to teacher candidates while in the program, and an introduction to the Education Students’ Association (ESA). Teacher candidates also attend program option specific sessions facilitated by their cohort coordinators.

Attendance is mandatory and teacher candidates must plan to attend for the full day on the program start date, as indicated in each program option.
