The ISABC Welcome Wagon Program (formerly the Newly Qualified Teachers Program) aims to provide teachers new to the ISABC as well as those new to BC with networking and collaboration opportunities. The program is structured around monthly online sessions that cover various themes. Importantly, each participant will be teamed up with a mentor in another ISABC school to provide support and networking connections throughout the year. In the event that in-person sessions are possible, there will be some full-day in-person Pro-D opportunities such as an initial session in the fall, a cross-school visit/observation day at another ISABC school in the winter, and a final session in the spring.
The program will complement in-school programming and meet specific needs of new educators.There will also be tailored sessions for those who are new to BC. Most importantly it provides a space for fellow teachers to engage participants in the association and have them connect and collaborate with other ISABC community members.
