Teacher Induction and Mentorship

Teacher Induction and Mentorship

As a beginning teacher, or an experienced teacher new to the NWT, each year is an opportunity to enhance your professional knowledge and skills, and to refine your teaching style.  Part of being a good teacher is recognizing that you are always learning and helping to instill that passion for life-long learning in your students.   The NWT has a Teacher Induction and Mentorship program to support new and beginning teachers in their first year in the North.

Teaching in the NWT will provide educators with an unforgettable experience. Before you accept a teaching position, make sure you research the implications of living and working in the NWT. Successful NWT educators are flexible in their thinking, have an understanding that things will be different than expected and, most importantly, come to learn as much as teach.
