The new French Immersion Teacher Mentorship is a micro-certificate program that empowers participants through the experience of knowledge-sharing, guidance and coaching in their immersion teaching environments. The mentorship program pairs experienced immersion teachers with newer or less experienced immersion teachers, with the aim of transforming their practice through mentorship, and creating a more engaged and confident workforce. The sharing of common experiences and knowledge will allow for personal and professional growth and, ultimately, help to support increased retention of those teaching in immersion environments.
Connect with experienced colleagues teaching FI across BC and Canada through stand-alone professional development workshops or become part of our formal French Immersion Teacher Mentorship program where newer and experienced immersion teachers will pair up to facilitate knowledge-sharing, guidance and coaching in their immersion teaching environments.
