For over forty years SUNTEP has offered a pre-service teacher training program. SUNTEP is delivered by the Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI), in partnership with the Ministry of Advanced Education, the University of Regina, and the University of Saskatchewan.
Distinct features of the SUNTEP program include small class sizes, one-on-one academic and instructor support, tutorials, and access to professional development opportunities and Michif cultural experiences on and off campus.
The primary goals of SUNTEP are:
SUNTEP is grounded in foundational education theories that embrace pedagogy of relations, culturally responsive education, diversity, and inclusivity. In the program you will learn about:
SUNTEP promotes a community of practice between peers, educators, Métis Old Ones/Knowledge Keepers, and the Michif community seeking to enhance equality, inclusivity, and diversity.
TUITION AND FEES
SUNTEP sponsors self-declared Métis applicants for all tuition and required fees during the four years of pre-service teacher training.
To subsidize living expenses, most SUNTEP students borrow money from Saskatchewan student loans and/or Canada student loans while attending university.
The closing date for applications for September intake is March 30th. The early admission deadline is February 17th. Some late applications may be accepted if spaces are still available
