Building Futures Workshops @ Room 102 Accolade East Building (ACE)
Feb 16 @ 9:00 am – Feb 17 @ 3:30 pm


The Ministry of Education's Building Futures program will be hosting 2-days of workshops for York teacher candidates on February 16 (PJI) and February 17 (JIS).

The Building Futures program began in 2004 with the purpose of establishing support and guidance to new teachers about to embark on their teaching careers by providing them with relevant tools and practical ministry resources.

The annual program is part of the first step in a continuum of professional learning and growth for teacher candidates as educators. The Ministry of Education recognizes how critical it is to the success of a new teacher to be familiar with the key goals, programs and priorities of Ontario's education system.

Teacher Candidates beginning their program will be able to take advantage of interactive learning with:
- Online tools and resources available 24/7 to support professional growth
- Webinars, voicecasts, e-books, tip sheets, videos, and e-modules to support learning

Teacher Candidates graduating in 2016 will be able to attend practical workshops with:
- Face-to-face learning and interactive panel discussions
- Certificate of participation upon completion
