As part of your experience at Lakehead, you are able to learn in diverse ways and in a variety of locations. By pairing with international partners, we are able to provide our teacher candidates with the chance to gain teaching experience in exciting locations around the world. The opportunity to complete a 5-week teaching placement is available exclusively to teacher candidates in Year 2 of the Professional Program, who have already successfully completed three placements in the program.
We are pleased to offer five international placement locations for a 5-week placement between March-May 2023. Please see the following links for information on partnerships and fact sheets on travel in each country:
An informational slide show about the 2023 placement opportunities, including budget projections, is available here.
If you have questions, please contact Dr. Jan Oakley, International Placement Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Note on the history of the international teaching placement program: The international teaching placement program was put on hold from 2020-2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to 2020, the Faculty of Education held international teaching placements in China and the United Kingdom.
