Program Description

The Yukon Native Teacher Education Program (YNTEP) after degree is a 60 credit program leading to a Bachelor of Education degree, offered in partnership with the University of Regina. Students with an approved undergraduate degree can enter directly into the 3rd year of the YNTEP program.  Graduates qualify for both Saskatchewan and Yukon Teacher Certification and are eligible for teacher certification throughout Canada. Teachers are certified for Kindergarten to Grade 12.

YNTEP is a full-time program consisting of fall and winter semesters as well as a one-week summer cultural camp course. The program provides extensive school practicum experiences to ensure that graduates are well prepared for teaching positions in Yukon, including rural schools, and elsewhere. YNTEP students gain the knowledge and skills to develop units of instruction, plan lessons incorporating best practices of instruction within a cross-cultural and diverse classroom, and learn a wide variety of teaching strategies to meet the needs of all learners.

One of the goals of YNTEP is to foster awareness and valuing of Yukon First Nations' cultural experiences.  Courses in Yukon First Nations history and courses in cross-cultural education serve to familiarize teachers-in-training with the diversity of students from a variety of Yukon First Nations. 

As program transitions happen students may choose to complete the current YNTEP program through University of Regina at Yukon College or transfer into any new teacher education program that becomes available in the future.
