Dear Members and Friends,
Re: New Educational Offerings for ECEs - Fall 2016
In the recent ECEBC Sector Survey, more than 60% of respondents asked for more educational offerings by online learning. ECEBC is pleased to announce a new partnership with Red River College (RRC). This arrangement will ensure that ECEs have opportunities to participate in high quality professional development in a way that is convenient to them. Two topics will be offered this fall:
Upon successful completion, participants will receive 6 hours of professional development credit per course.
Level of Learning: Intermediate (Suggested Prerequisite: ECE diploma)
Course instructors from RRC will be in touch with course participants to respond to questions and provide orientation. Professional Development certificates will be issued by ECEBC.
Cost: $80.00 for ECEBC Members. $150.00 for Non-Members
Online registration is currently open!
For more information or registration forms for those who would prefer not to register online, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share this event with any colleagues who might be interested.
ECEBC is pleased to announce that the ECE Student Bursary Program will run for the Fall 2016 semester (September to December 2016). Fall 2016 Bursary applications are now available.
During the summer of 2014, the Early Childhood Educators of BC received funding from the Ministry of Children and Family Development to establish a bursary fund for students enrolled in early childhood educational programs. To respond to identified needs, priority will be given to:
• Aboriginal students,
• Students attending early childhood educational programs with an Aboriginal focus, and
• Students working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation.
All students registered for ECE courses during the Fall 2016 semester (September to December 2016) at an approved training institution are encouraged to apply. Students will be able to apply for up to $300 per course, to a maximum of $1,500 per semester.
Eligible applicants must be enrolled at an approved educational institution in an ECE program, with priority given to Aboriginal students, or students enrolled in ECE programs with an Aboriginal focus or working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation.
To determine if the post-secondary institution you are or will be attending is an approved educational institution, please view the Ministry of Children and Family Development's list at:
