This resource provides suggestions for defining employment needs, recruiting new employees, and employment practices for staff that are hired for BC First Nations schools. The toolkit includes a general discussion of a variety of topics and issues, as well as sample forms and letters. In all cases, the samples are intended as ideas and suggestions, and they can and should be adapted and changed to reflect the unique circumstances of each school.

Employment Toolkit for First Nations Schools (2020) was developed by the First Nations Education Steering Committee and First Nations Schools Association.
