SK invests $12M to increase access to early childhood educator training


The Government of Saskatchewan recently announced a $12M investment to increase access to training and professional development for early childhood educators. This funding will be used by 10 postsecondary institutions to deliver tuition-free training in the form of certificate, diploma, and specialized training programs. Postsecondary institutions partnering with SK to deliver this initiative include Carlton Trail College, College Mathieu, Cumberland College, Dumont Technical Institute, Great Plains College, North West College, Northlands College, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and Southeast College. These programs are set to prioritize learners who are already working in the field, such as childcare home assistants or those employed in childcare centres.
