People interested in teaching will be able to register more quickly for a university study program in education, the premier of Nova Scotia announced.

Currently, university students must have an undergraduate degree before they can enroll in such training. The government is reducing these requirements so that they can apply after just two years of undergraduate university study.

Prime Minister Tim Houston announced this Friday evening in Halifax during the annual general meeting of the Progressive Conservative Party, which he leads.

Like the old days, he said. It worked before and it will work now.

His ambition, he said, is for these changes to be implemented in time for the start of the academic year next fall.

Tim Houston later told media that this correction is a response to the lack of teachers in the province. Behind-the-scenes discussions with the teachers' union and university management took place. Those who want to teach must have a class more quickly, he judges.

For many people, this will be an opportunity to become a teacher, and that's very exciting, said the Prime Minister.

This is the latest in a series of measures intended to counter the shortage of teachers in a province where the population has increased significantly in recent years. Two years ago, the government offered fast-track accreditation to 282 education graduates to address the shortage of supply teachers during the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last January, Cape Breton University launched an accelerated online teacher training pilot program. Members of the first cohort of this eight-month program will be able to teach starting next September.

The same university will replace its teaching training program next May to make it last 12 months rather than 15.

In his speech Friday, Tim Houston said job offers will be made to everyone students about to obtain a degree in education at one of Nova Scotia's universities.

Becky Druhan, Minister of Education , said at a recent job fair that regional education centers had already made some 300 job offers to prospective teachers. She said she expected the majority of them to be accepted.
