FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



















        Can I choose which age group I will teach?

The majority (about 80%) of the public school posts are in Elementary Schools (6-12 year olds) with the remaining posts spread across Middle (12-14 year olds) & High Schools (15-17 year olds).


During the final placement process at the EPIK Orientation (February/August) your Metro/Provincial co-ordinator will finalize your school placement. You are welcome to indicate to them your age preferences but please be very aware that the task of marrying up new teachers with available posts is a very difficult one. The co-ordinator does not have the power to “create” schools out of thin air to meet your preferences so it is very important that you approach this exercise with an open and flexible attitude. So it is very helpful to start your conversation with,


“Hello, my name is --------. If it is at all possible I would love to teach at a Middle or High School - but if this is not possible I will be very happy to be assigned to a post where a teacher is required, thank you”
