UQAM implements new pilot project to train more teachers


This summer, a pilot project at the Université du Québec à Montréal will bring specialized training to eligible staff at the Centre de services scolaires de la Pointe-de-L’Île (CSSPI). CSSPI personnel who have a bachelor’s degree but are not certified teachers will be able to participate in training that could lead to a teaching license. Learners will receive support from practitioners and participate in a specialized Diplôme d’Études Supérieures Spécialisées program in preschool and primary education. Québec Ministre de l’Éducation Bernard Drainville said that this initiative is part of the province’s ongoing efforts to provide more flexibility for people wishing to train as teachers.
