4. In case you do not dress in western clothes, try getting into some western outfits and not be conscious about it. You will need to wear such clothes once you are here.

For Factory job, girls wear Indian dress too. Mean you do not have to follow western dress too much... and for office kind of job, sometime it is not easy to practice western dress in India so don't worry you can practice this thing here in Canada...so you can ignore this # 4 for now.

While I appreciate the efforts of Maxim to give you his input, but as soon as I read it, I knew it would create problem. That is what has happened - you have been believed to think that getting into teaching is easy in Canada.

Well let me clarify that it is one of the toughest professions to get in, as well as remain there, and that is why, this profession is in reasonably good demand all over North America.

What about job as Early Childhood Education Assistant Job ?

That is also not an easy process. First it is a support job to an ECE or room teacher. Plus you are required to know cooking too as lunch is to be cooked by ECA if instructed by supervisor. Their preference is for those candidate who possess certificate from Canada. If you are lucky to get a job as ECA without volunteer service hold on to it and not venture for better prospects.

Hi Archana,

I am also from a Gujarati medium school in Mumbai. I never knew that I would nbe settling in India, but somehow I had this passion to learn and speak English. As Chandreshji mentioned, I kept on reading stuff in English that was of interest to me. That improved my vocabulary a lot. Secondly, I kept speaking in English with few of my friends who used to be from english medium schools. I also did watch some good English TV programmes. I also did take classes in Public Speaking (that helped a lot to improve my pronouciations and confidence to speak in public)

Bottomline is that no matter what medium you did your schooling or education, you can still coomunicate in English fluently. Just have faith in yourself and keep on practising and reading.

Chandresh provided very usefull info.....but
I think Western style dresses are not necessary for an indian woman,except if you r planning to do some labour job,weight lifting,cleaning,restaurants etc.
for other jobs Indian dresses are much better and comfortable, last month i visited york university,& i see that some seniour Indian lady professors wearing sarees.:)
so i think western dress will not help for being successful in canada:D .

NOT ALL SCHOOL NEED CERTIFICATION,,OR BEd
PRIVATE SCHOOLS THEY D,NT REQUIRED ANY BEd OR CERTIFICATION:

option for teaching in private schools, since
many don't require certification with the College. The Ministry of
Education web site has a list of private schools:
http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/general/elemsec/privsch/index.html

Govt school:

If you don't have a program training you to be a teacher, you must apply for
a one-year Bachelor of Education in Ontario. Here's the web site you need
to find an application:

The College's web site has a list of universities that offer the Bachelor of
Education:

With the background you have narrated, it will be best for you to prepare yourself in such a manner:

I do not want to start a discussion on this topic, but now we have IHPatel who says Indian dresses are ok if you are working in a factory (which I agree to) and on the other hand Maxim saying, western dresses are necessary if you are working in a factory .................

And I do not deny someone might have seen Indian ladies wearing Sarees in York university last month - my wife did that along with a lot of her South Asian colleagues (and even made her Jewish principal wear that!!!) - since it was the month of Diwali and ID!

Chandresh

And let me also tell you - York is the university which has more Asians than any other Canadian University. You will infact hear a lot of students speaking in Hindi and Punjabi and Gujarati on the campus of York!

B.Ed (distance education) is not recognised in Canada. I am confussed with maxim's msg that B.Ed is not required. It is not my field anyway but, from research my wife did for her career she was not able to get job in any school because her B.Ed was from Nevadita college - Calcutta. If he is talking of montessori school then course in montessori teaching is a must. For ECE it is a different field all together. It is a Daycare where kids come before and after school. These daycare are run by community and pvt, both of them require ECE. And all the above possible jobs need atleast 3 months of volunteer services. Good reason to do ECE is that it is a short term course and easy to get into compare to B.Ed & Ontario govt. feels that Daycare are in less compare to number of students therefore they are discussing for having daycare at every school in Toronto.

I do not know much about private schools' and montessory requirements but to me what ever Jagodesi has written seems correct (for me also, it is based on whatever my wife used to tell me while she was reserching on the subject)

Distant learning (BEd) is definitely not recognised I remember.
