Contact to Contract

Faculty of Education Professional Development


Contact to Contract is a career exploration seminar for students of the University of Winnipeg's Faculty of Education. It is geared to students in the certification years of the program but may also be of interest to year 3 students who are ready to begin thinking about career exploration and their first job placement.

The seminars will focus on the development of skills such as:

  • Résumé Writing
  • Cover Letters
  • Portfolio Development
  • Interview Skills
  • The Application Process (presentations in the Winter term by the various Divisions in MB)
  • Contract Signing Stipulations (presented by MTS)
  • Opportunities to Be Interviewed by School Division Personnel (only for Graduating students)
  • Presentations by Alumni

Contact to Contract is also a project course on Nexus and is avaiable to all students registered in a practicum course in year 3 and certification years. You can access the resources when you have time. Some of the live presentations will be taped for use on Nexus, so students not able to attend will still be able to benefit from the presentations. Please checkout the project course on NEXUS, it will show up in the drop down list of courses.
