October 28, 2020
Nipissing University and Kenjgewin Teg have partnered to offer the Indigenous Classroom Assistant Diploma Program (ICADP). The jointly offered program has been designed to support Indigenous students in First Nation and Ontario provincial schools and graduates will be qualified to work with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students as classroom assistants. “This new partnership contributes to our shared goals of advancing and increasing control of Indigenous Education as one of many Calls to Action made by the TRC,” said Stephanie Roy, President of Kenjgewin Teg. “Going forward, our local Mnidoo Mnising and surrounding communities will continue to see more opportunities in our teaching and learning programs for new and current educators, as we continue working together with partners like Nipissing University who support culturally relevant training and education closer to home.” Nipissing (ON)
