The First Nations Schools Association and the First Nations Education Steering Committee invite First Nations school representatives to the Recruitment and Retention Regional Workshops, designed to support school hiring and retention process.

The workshops will introduce you to use the new brand for teacher recruitment, so that you can effectively attract highly qualified teachers to apply for your positions. We will then review the process by which you will hire them and discuss strategies for retention. Each attendee will receive a binder with related manuals.
