Post-Secondary Training and Professional Development Opportunities
Post-Secondary and Professional Development opportunities for Early Childhood Educators will be tuition-free this winter at SIIT!
Supported by the Government of Saskatchewan and the Ministry of Advanced Education, we are expanding programs to address the need for a certified Early Childhood Education workforce that includes more Indigenous people and perspectives.
The Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies is engaging a variety of experts to refresh our curriculum and approach to program delivery. Adding to our menu of classroom-based certificate and diploma programs, fast-tracked post-secondary training will start in early 2022.
Level One and Two ECE will include prior learning assessment and online courses designed for frontline staff who have previous experience working with children. These options will allow students to continue education while staying employed.
Stay tuned – more information to follow in the coming weeks!
Additional options for professional development are being developed for the ECE workforce, with themes including:
- Teaching and learning
- Special needs
- Mental health
- First Nations culture
Webinars and conferences will be hosted in the spring of 2022, and will provide additional learning and networking opportunities.
