NWT releases Educator Training Plans

In the most recent step toward its transition to British Columbia’s JK-12 curriculum, the Government of the Northwest Territories has released its 2023-2024 Educator Training Plans. The plans indicate that educators, support staff, new NWT educators, education bodies, and school principals will take part in dedicated training sessions throughout the 2023-24 school year to become familiar with the foundational parts of the curriculum and assessment tools. NWT states that “holistic, relational, spiral, and experiential Indigenous principles of learning” will be embedded in all government-led training sessions. During this time, NWT will also hold engagement sessions with Indigenous governments, the teachers’ association, and education bodies to gather feedback. The curriculum renewal process will be gradually implemented between the 2023-24 academic year and the 2027-28 academic year.
