Elementary Teacher Education Program (ETEP) Degree Requirements

NOTE: The Bachelor of Education program will no longer offer entry to the BEd Elementary Teacher Education Program (ETEP) beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year. A renewed Bachelor of Education program is offered in 2017. The Elementary Teacher Education Program (ETEP) that began in 2016-2017 (as Year 1) will be offered in 2017-2018 for Year 2 degree requirements.

Timeframe to Complete ETEP

A student enrolled in ETEP must complete the final practicum within four years of beginning the program. If a student is unable to complete the final practicum within this timeframe, the student will be required to complete a professional learning plan, developed in consultation with the School Experience Coordinator, to demonstrate readiness for commencing practicum. This professional learning plan may include additional and/or repeated coursework.
