Bursaries for BCTF members
In 2005, the Autism Community Training Society (ACT) was the beneficiary of funds from the BC Teachers’ Federation. The BCTF was required to distribute fine monies resulting from their illegal strike. In recognition of BCTF’s decision to give this money to ACT, and in acknowledgement that addressing the educational needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) requires specific training, ACT is pleased to announce the development of a bursary fund for BCTF members.
BCTF members who want to attend an ACT workshop will receive a bursary for 80% of their registration fee if they live a significant distance from the event; 65% if it is close to their community. Those living in the Lower Mainland, within the boundaries of the GVRD will receive a 65% bursary to attend workshops within the Lower Mainland. Applicants will need to provide proof they are a BC public school teacher.
