New pathway for Saskatchewan Polytechnic Educational Assistant Certificate holders

Did you complete Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Educational Assistant Certificate (EAC) Program on or after June 30, 2021 (with a minimum PGPA of 65%)? 

If so, have you been dreaming about having your own classroom … about becoming a teacher?

This news is for you! A new pathway has opened up for you to become a teacher at the U of R — with a maximum of 30 credit hours transferred toward a Bachelor of Education (Elementary) 4-year degree!

On Friday, February 3, 2023, the University of Regina’s Faculty of Education and Saskatchewan Polytechnic signed an agreement which allows qualifying EAs to enter the University of Regina’s Bachelor of Education (BEd) Elementary program, with up to 30 credit hours (1 year) transferred towards the 4-year BEd degree.
