The Technology Teacher Education (TTED) program enables you to teach technology education in BC's Middle and High School system. Offered as a joint program with the University of British Columbia (UBC), it explores technical components at BCIT and the teaching component at UBC. It has three components:
When all three of the above program components have been completed a Bachelor of Education Degree is awarded by UBC. B.Ed degree holders qualify for a BC Professional Teaching Certificate.

Each year of the TTED program is divided into two terms - the first term runs from September to December (15 weeks) and the second term runs from January to the third week in May (20 weeks) with a one week break in the middle. In level 1 of the program, the introductory courses run in the first 5 weeks and are then followed by the 10 week foundations courses.
You will spend 30 hours each week in labs and lectures. Overall, approximately 75% of your time is spent in labs, and 25% in lectures, giving you the ability to understand the theory and principles while learning vital, practical skills.
The TTED program accepts 22 students each year. Small classes encourage an atmosphere of camaraderie, healthy competition and teamwork as well as allowing instructors to provide plenty of individual attention to students.
Do you have credits from another BC/Yukon post-secondary school? Do you want to know if they transfer to courses here at BCIT? Check out BCIT's Transfer Equivalency Database to find out.
Technology Teacher Education may also lead to careers in post-secondary training, industry training or other occupations that require technical generalists.
