Change It Up - Info Session

May 17, 2023

Wednesday, May 17

The ATESL Central and Southern Alberta Local Chapters are so excited to be hosting this exciting session for our members!

Come and learn about an amazing new P.D. opportunity available to ESL instructors in Canada!

Change it Up P.D. is an online, interactive course to help trainers, instructors and group leaders facilitate within a strengths-based, trauma-aware approach. Whether you teach literacy or employment skills (online or in-person), you’ll leave this course with hands-on techniques, strategies, and methods to set the stage for learning and create safe and brave spaces for growth.

For a limited time, tuition for the course is being fully funded by ESDC, for anyone working within the ESL community in Canada (so you can take the training at no cost)!  Course feedback from hundreds of participants indicates 98% would recommend the course to others and 99% left with more tools, techniques and approaches to help them do their job better.

Join the info session and find out why!
