Newsletter for October

Welcome Message

We are now well into the school year as we start October and it is a perfect time to pause for a moment and reflect on our teachers.

October 5 is World Teachers Day, a day that began in 1966 with Unesco’s recommendation concerning the status of teachers. It is a day to celebrate and support teachers. I think this is especially poignant this year as teachers are continuing to support their learners within the context of a global pandemic.

One and a half years into the COVID-19 crisis, the 2021 World Teachers’ Day will focus on the support teachers need to fully contribute to the recovery process under the theme “Teachers at the heart of education recovery.” (Unesco site, paragraph 5

Our network is blessed with supportive, caring, and rigorous teachers who truly place our learners at the centre of their learning paths. Please pass on this message of thank you and recognition to them.

Nia:wen, Welàlin, Tshinaskumitin, Migwetc, Merci, Thank you

News from the TRÉAQ

New SVI tools designed by the TRÉAQ’s organizational team

Thanks to a recent Canada-Quebec agreement, the TRÉAQ has been able to adapt tools produced by their organizational team to support managers, professionals and teachers who offer the Socio-Vocational Integration (SVI) program in Indigenous Adult Education Centres. To start, we wish to share this video on the SVI program of study. It provides extensive information on the curriculum and the program’s four dimensions. Enjoy!

*Special thanks to Ms. Diane Labelle of the FNAESC for producing this video.
