Kenanow Bachelor of Education Programme

The Kenanow Bachelor of Education is a northern-based and Aboriginal-focused teacher education program. The program melds the wisdom and guidance provided by Elders in northern Manitoba with the certification standards and academic expectations of Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning.
During the development of the program, extensive consultation occurred with a variety of regional stakeholders. The suggestions, opinions, and knowledge shared by the stakeholders are reflected in the program content. The Kenanow program philosophy reflects the mission statement of UCN. The Seven Sacred Teachings – wisdom, respect, truth, humility, honesty, bravery and love – are embedded in the design and delivery of the program. Please see the Kenanow Model.
The program has a Middle Years focus but prepares graduates to teach students at all grade levels. The program aims to graduate teachers who are aware of and responsive to the needs of their students. When implementing curricula, graduates of the program will have the skills to link provincial curricula in culturally meaningful way to the life experiences of their students. Graduates of the program will not only be proficient enough as teachers to effectively meet the needs of children and youth in the north, but capable of teaching effectively anywhere in Manitoba. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for professional certification through Manitoba Education.
