Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP)

The Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI) offers the SUNTEP Bachelor of Education degree in three centres, as described in this excerpt from GDI's website:

"SUNTEP was established in 1980. It is a four-year, fully accredited Bachelor of Education program, offered by the Gabriel Dumont Institute in cooperation with Ministry of Education, the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. The program is offered in three urban centres  -- Prince Albert, Saskatoon, and Regina.

For the first two years of their studies, SUNTEP students attend classes at a SUNTEP location. The final two years include a four-month internship and may include class work at one of the university campuses in an elementary, middle years, or secondary program.

The SUNTEP program includes Native Studies and cross-cultural education with an emphasis on Métis and First Nations history and culture. The program also provides a solid foundation in the theories and skills of teaching. A substantial amount of time is spent in schools working with teachers and students. Most fieldwork is done in urban centres."
