How do I qualify for the CATEP Program?

Candidates must be of Aboriginal descent (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) and employed as an Educational Assistant at a participating School Division:

Winnipeg School Division

Seven Oaks School Division

Lord Selkirk School Division

River East/Transcona School Division

Saagkeeng First Nation

Louis Riel School Division

Roseau River First Nation

Lakeshore School Division

Mountain View School Division

St James Assiniboia School Division

Red River Valley School Division

Pembina Trails School Division 

How do I apply to the CATEP program?

All potential applicants must communicate their interest in participating in CATEP to their school division. Each school division has their own orientation session which potential applicants must attend in order to receive a formal CATEP application.

How long does it take to complete?

The program takes an average of 6 years to complete. Students will graduate with Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees. Their teaching major will be English, and they will focus on Early and Middle Years (K-8) education. All course content will have an emphasis on Aboriginal perspectives.

What if the school division I work in is not a participating division?

We encourage those students working in divisions that are not partners, to contact their school principal to advocate to the division to consider becoming a partner.
