Student Support Teacher Conference

The Government of Nunavut Department of Education is holding the first territorial Student Support Teacher Conference from November 6 to 8, 2018. The conference will focus on the elements of the new model of inclusive education for Nunavut.

There are approximately 45 Student Support Teachers (SST) in Nunavut. They support and facilitate educational programming in schools, act as instructional leaders, and help teachers plan, deliver, assess and evaluate education programs for each of their students.

In training sessions, SSTs will be introduced to new resources that will help guide them in their daily work. They will also participate in sessions with occupational therapists and speech language pathologists to enhance their capacity to provide trauma-informed support when planning educational programs for Nunavut students.
