B.Ed. Student Changes The World One Beeswax Wrap at Time.

July, 15, 2019

By: Megan Tucker

I was fortunate enough to spend my Queen’s Alternative Practicum in Uganda, engaging in one of many projects from the Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation (ASTCF). The bulk of my time in Uganda was spent teaching environmental education at a village school, to roughly seven hundred primary students. 

Student Experiences: Alternative Practicum is Unforgettable

January 29, 2019
By: Emily Kirk 

Hello, my name is Emily Kirk and I am a new Queen’s alumni! I was a primary/junior teacher candidate who completed the program this past July and graduated in November. My time in the program was certainly memorable but one of the highlights would have to be my alternative practicum. I had the incredible opportunity of going to Kenya along with nine other teacher candidates to work with an organization called Living Positive Kenya. It was the most unforgettable life changing experience and I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made to apply to be a part of this team for my alternative practicum.

Teachers' Overseas Recruiting Fair and Placement Services

TORF is the recruiting fair of choice for Canadian teachers and international schools around the world.

Register with our Teachers' Overseas Placement Services (TOPS) for full-year online job placement.

TORF is a face-to-face component of our Teachers’ Overseas Recruitment Services (TOPS), which is offered online throughout the year to Canadian teachers, new and experienced, interested in launching their international teaching career.

Queen's University Faculty of Education has been inviting international schools to recruit Canadian teachers since 1989 as part of TORF. We have successfully placed thousands of teachers in schools around the world.

TORF is an annual on-site recruiting fair that allows teachers to have face-to-face interviews with independent, accredited international schools, and to sign contracts. The fair takes place at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, every year at the end of January. During the fair, teachers are introduced to the international schools through formal school presentations, an interview sign-up session, as well as a networking reception. During the fair, international school administrators interview teachers for various teaching jobs. Our expert career advisors are available to coach teachers on making the decision to go abroad to teach. As a not-for-profit educational organization, we also provide valuable professional development opportunities for teachers and school administrators throughout the TORF weekend

On-site Dates: January 28-30, 2022
Location: Duncan McArthur Hall, Queen's University

Online: Year round
