Full Posting and Application Process can be found here: https://camosun.peopleadmin.ca/postings/4458 (closes June 26, 2022)

The successful candidate(s) should have extensive experience and knowledge of current pedagogy of the early years field, and uphold values of decolonizing education, inclusion, collaboration, equity, diversity, and cultivating culturally safe spaces within the college and community. The ELC program also supports many multi-lingual and English language learners and international students and invite applicants with multiple languages to highlight this in their cover letter.

The Early learning and Care Diploma program is a dynamic, applied diploma program that provides learners with the knowledge, skills and values to create responsive and nurturing early learning experiences for all children and families, including children with diverse abilities from infancy to school aged. The curriculum philosophy uses strength-based, child and family focused principles with an emphasis on democratic and collaborative practices.

Indigenous perspectives on supporting children and families, and connections to nature, land and place, as well as the impact of colonization and the residential school experience, are woven throughout the learning experience. Students learn how to support and strengthen children’s unique and complex identities within their particular contexts of family, community and culture. The program incorporates a sociocultural perspective of early childhood education as identified by current research and contemporary discourses. The ELC program prepares learners with a strong foundation for a variety of professional opportunities in the field of early learning and care, including leadership and advocacy.
