Mentorship

A developing program for new and master educators

Christian Educators of BC is committed to supporting and strengthening early career educators who are new to the teaching profession, role, and Christian education community. Our goal is to develop a quality mentorship program that provides a research-based, sustainable system of support for teachers in the early years of their career throughout the province. The program will also facilitate the building of effective, learning-focused relationships between mentors and new teachers. If you are interested in being a part of this initiative, or would simply like more information, please contact the CEBC office.
