New Teachers’ Workshop

October 12, 2017, 8:30AM-3PM at the VSTA office

The VSTA is hosting a BCTF workshop for NEW TEACHERS.  The workshop introduces new members to both our local union and the BCTF, to the collective agreement and highlights sections most relevant to new members.  We will explore the responsibilities and challenges of maintaining positive professional relations with students, parents and colleagues. Further, the workshop builds awareness on issues such as professional development and professional autonomy.  Finally, we will discuss the economic, social and democratic contributions that unions have made to Canadian society.
