About Our Professional Seminars

At Lakehead, we prepare you to be a successful teacher in and out of the classroom. While your in-class work is a crucial part of being an effective teacher, you must also understand the professional components of education.

By attending our Professional Seminars, you will become familiar with the professional aspects of teaching. Each seminar works to provide you with current information about the teaching profession, including:

  • Essential Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) information
  • Ministry of Education initiatives
  • Salary Scale information
  • Employment and job fair information
  • Professional development and lifelong learning opportunities

All Professional Seminars are mandatory and are important to your time at Lakehead and to your future as a teacher.
