Practicum Placement

English Language Programs

Unlike the other components of the English as an Additional Language Teacher Certificate Program (EALTCP), there is no 'class' for the practicum placement. This component of the program is arranged independently for each student. It involves the following:

  • 10 hours of observation in an experienced ESL/EAL teacher’s classroom
  • 10 hours of supervised teaching in an experienced ESL/EAL teacher’s classroom

Please note:

  • There are very limited practicum placements available during the summer months
  • Depending on practicum registration, you may be placed on a wait list for your practicum

Please review the Practicum Handbook [PDF] for detailed information about the practicum component of this program.

Tuition and Fees

The in-course practicum placement fee is $300, and can be paid when the student registers for the placement. The stand-alone practicum placement fee is $560 for students that have not completed their course work with EALTCP. An application fee of $120 is required by first time applicants.

Note: For students living in Winnipeg, this placement is arranged by the program coordinator. For students living outside of Winnipeg, the placement contacts must be independently arranged. Please contact Scott Poole, the EALTCP coordinator, at 204.789.1484 or for more information about this process.
