All teacher updaters should be aware of the Faculty’s policy surrounding practicum placements:
Practicum placements are in Lower Mainland school districts and in selected locations throughout the province. The availability of placements in some areas may be limited and teacher updaters must be prepared to accept placement for the 2- and 10-week practica anywhere within 125 km of the UBC campus. Teacher updaters make their own arrangements for, and bear the cost of, personal transportation and accommodation during practica.
Please complete the form below to submit your practicum placement request.
Special circumstances which would affect practicum placements will be considered. Students are asked to make an appointment to see a program coordinator in regard to special circumstances affecting practica. Relevant documentation should be provided (e.g., medical condition).Special Circumstances Form
