Event attracts jobs seekers
On Sept. 26, the Kenora District Board hosted the Job Seekers Training 2013 event at the Royal Canadian in Sioux Lookout.
The event brought together all education, training and funding providers from the region into one event for area residents to network and find solutions and opportunities in education.
Katie Brown, a post-secondary counsellor with Northern Nishnawbe Education Council (NNEC) programs participated in the events. She explained the financial sponsorship and policy for the Student Support Program; eligible students that are funded; supporting tuition; course materials; travel and accommodations; practicum-related allowances and what students need to meet the criteria under the policy. Wahsa Distance Education Centre also joined other education service providers at the Job Seeker Training 2013 event.
Rose Yesno is a Bachelor of Education co-ordinator with the Sioux Lookout District Bachelor of Education Program, a partnership between Brock University and NNEC.
She said the B.Ed program extends over five years and a student can earn 22 credits.
In particular, the program addresses community needs and it integrates First Nations’ content, perspectives, Elders and role models.
