2024 Education Career Fair

On Friday, January 19, 2024, the Teacher Education Office hosts the annual Education Career Fair at UBC, the largest teacher recruiting event in BC. This year, the event will be held in person in the Great Hall of the AMS Student Nest.

Participation by UBC teacher candidates is not mandatory but highly encouraged. Most BEd classes are cancelled on this day so that TCs may attend the fair. At the Career Fair, UBC BEd students are given the unique opportunity to meet and present themselves to recruiting officers from school districts in BC and other provinces/territories, as well as independent and international recruiters.
