Mamu Tshishkutamashutau Innu Education, McGill partner to launch teacher training program

Mamu Tshishkutamashutau Innu Education has partnered with McGill University to launch a new two-year teaching certificate for Sheshatshiu and Mushua Innu. The program will cover the fundamentals of instruction and assessment and provide lessons on Innu-aimun and Innu culture. It will be free for 20 eligible applicants; learners do not need a high school diploma to apply. “It’ll mean everything, kids being able to see someone that looks like them and talks like them and learn from them and be able to have that comfort in that classroom, which then will be able to help them grow their confidence in the future,” said Mamu Tshishkutamashutau student support manager Nykesha Gregoire.
