Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP)
off-campus site through a satellite campus or regional partner.
SUNTEP is a four-year program designed for Métis and non-status aboriginal students who want to teach at either the elementary/middle years or secondary level.
- This program is available to students in both Prince Albert and Saskatoon, making access to classes easier for potential students.
- Because the program is direct-entry, students have several opportunities for field experience in both traditional and holistic approaches, ensuring that Aboriginal culture is present throughout the training.
This program, offered in both Prince Albert and Saskatoon, includes Native studies and cross-cultural education. Field experience begins in the first year of the program and continues through to graduation. Classroom experience includes—but is not limited to— urban centres, rural communities, northern schools, band schools and the Catholic School Division.
