WKTEP focuses on teaching in rural and small schools.
The site coordinators provide opportunities for rural practicum placements in our four local school districts: SD8 (Kootenay Lake), SD10 (Arrow Lakes), SD20 (Kootenay-Columbia), and SD51 (Boundary), as well as rural placements in other school districts around the province.
WKTEP site coordinators will work with students to determine their practicum placements. Teacher candidates may not make arrangements for a practicum placement under any circumstance. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee placement in any given location and be prepared to accept the placement deemed appropriate for you by the coordinators. Teacher candidates make their own arrangements for, and bear the cost of, personal transportation and accommodation during practica.
