Be Known, Be Prepared

As a student in King's Faculty of Education, you will study in a tight-knit cohort where classmates become friends and future colleagues. King's innovative curriculum blends theory, reflective practices, and lectures from highly qualified professors.

Get In The Classroom Sooner, And For Longer

A 6- or 7-week practicum in your first year of study provides real school experience early in your program. An extended 11-week teaching practicum in your second year ensures that you will enter the workforce with confidence.

Practicums and Applied Learning

Field experience is where an aspiring teacher begins to understand what it means to teach students in a real-world setting. At King's, education students spend a total of 18 weeks teaching in the classroom across two practicums. Each student meets with their education field manager who assists in finding the practicum and school setting that's right for them.

All practicums take place under the supervision of certified classroom mentor teachers and King’s faculty supervisors.

In addition to classroom practicums, students participate in hands-on learning through one-on-one work with struggling students, attending literacy and numeracy events, and participating in classroom observation sessions.
