Each year, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation honours the memory of Maxwell A. Cameron with the presentation of a silver lapel pin and monetary award to selected education students who have completed their final year of education and training at one of BC’s public universities.
At UNBC, the outstanding Teacher Candidates in both the Elementary Years and Secondary Years stream are selected through a process of nomination by their Cooperating Teachers, Practicum Supervisors, and/or the School of Education faculty and the evaluation of their academic and professional preparation, practicum work, and their commitment to social justice issues.
The School of Education has offered a Master of Education degree since UNBC was established. In 2002 the addition of a post-degree Bachelor of Education doubled the student enrollment, faculty and support staff as well as course offerings.
Bachelor of Education
Teacher candidates in both the Elementary and Secondary streams complete course work and practicum experiences over a two-year period. Upon completion, successful candidates are granted a B.Ed. degree and will be recommended to the Teacher Regulation Branch for a professional teaching certificate. Individuals require this certificate to teach in the public schools in the province of British Columbia.

The Multidisciplinary Leadership specialization is designed to prepare graduates to take on roles of responsibility or leadership in a number of educational or community environments. In particular, our graduates will develop skills in collaboration and communication, as well as specific leadership practices that enable the creation of positive and innovative organizational environments. At the same time, a rigorous academic focus provides the knowledge that is necessary to ground effective practice in the diverse and rich scholarship of leadership.
