Stephen Taylor, Director of Learning:

Professional Learning at Canadian Academy is rich and varied, focused on improving student learning and inspiring creative inquiry. Teachers at CA are actively involved in weekly PD sessions (students leave early on Wednesdays), including working towards school goals, collaborative planning, assessment, reflection, using student data and more.

Teachers' annual goals are based around their self-directed Tankyuu teacher inquiry projects, which take many forms. Our teachers are encouraged to lead learning through Teachers Teaching Teachers sessions, and supported to become workshop leaders, school visitors and presenters.

You can find out more about the life of a teacher at Canadian Academy from our employment pages.
