Education Assistants support students in
inclusive educational settings Kindergarten-grade 12 who present with a wide
range of abilities. Connect your passion
for supporting children and youth with a career in the school system.
As our program includes hands-on skill
based experiential learning delivered in face-to-face format; we only accept a
maximum of 30 students per cohort. You learn with your peers as you progress through a specifically designed
schedule of courses with key emphasis on developing tools, strategies and
practical application of skills for the EA role.
Our graduates are in demand! Across the province, there is a critical
shortage of appropriately trained and certified EAs for on-call, part-time or
full-time positions. Almost every school district in the province requires some
form of post-secondary certification in order to be considered for employment
within their district so; come to one of our information sessions to learn more.
Successful EAs have the passion and
commitment for working with children or adolescents; are patient, flexible,
consider schools to be interesting and exciting places; and show self
initiative while working in a world of rapidly changing ideas. If you are a creative and enthusiastic
problem solver, who has a positive attitude and a desire to help others; we
would like to hear from you.
