Vacancy on the Teacher Regulation Branch’s Teachers’ Council
There is a vacancy on the BC Teachers' Council for a BCTF appointee. The BC Teachers' Council receives its mandate from the Teachers Act and is responsible for establishing the standards for the education, competence, and professional conduct required of applicants and educators in BC, setting teacher education program approval standards, and determining if teacher education programs meet these standards. If you are interested in applying to be a BCTF appointee to the council, learn more and apply online by December 15, 2017. This is a separate process from the zonal elections for the BC Teachers' Council, which will be coming up in the new year.

The deadline for applications to participate in the BCTF Summit on Workplace Violence in Schools is December 19, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. The summit will be held January 18, 2018 in Vancouver.
