NATIVE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS

 

Lakehead University's Native Teacher Education Program (NTEP) was developed and designed to increase the number of qualified Native teachers through an innovative program which will prepare them to meet educational needs of Native communities, taking into account such factors as cultural heritage, identity, and language. The program prepares NTEP candidates to teach in Band-operated and provincial schools. Teachers who have an intimate understanding of Native traditions, psychology, way of life, and language are best able to create a learning environment suited to the habits and interests of the Native child. In addition to educational methodology and theory, these programs include courses in Native culture and traditions such as Native languages, Native arts and crafts, Canada's First Nation's literature, and Indigenous Studies.

The Native Teacher Education Program (NTEP), through its academic programs, provides people of Native ancestry with the opportunity to pursue an Arts or Science degree while concurrently working toward the Bachelor of Education. NTEP offers:
(a) the BA or BSc (General Program) and BEd (Native Education) at the Primary-Junior level
(b) a BA, HBA, BSc, or HBSc in a recognized major subject and a BEd with a Native education component in P/J, J/I, or I/S specialization levels (Native Languages is a recognized teachable subject at both the J/I and I/S levels.)
(c) the BA or HBA (Indigenous Learning) and BEd at all three specialization levels - Primary-Junior, Junior-Intermediate, or Intermediate/Senior
(d) a Specialization as Teacher of Aboriginal Learners at P/J, J/I, or I/S levels
(e) Community based learning which allows off-campus students to complete the education components of the two concurrent degrees in order to receive a Basic Ontario Teacher Certification.

Students holding Native Language Teachers' Certification (NLTC) may receive substitution credits, to recognize work previously completed, in any of the NTEP programs listed above.
