Description:The Yukon Native Language Centre (YNLC) offers training and certification for Yukon Aboriginal Language Teachers. YNLC staff and Elders have developed and now teach the certificate and diploma program for native language instructors at Yukon College. Three courses - Language Structure, Second Language Teaching Methods, and Professionalism and Class Management - are taught at Yukon College for one week during each term. The literacy course is offered for one week in either term and the practicum takes place in the student’s own classroom throughout both terms.

Regular attendance is important in order to succeed in this program. Students must be committed to teaching a language and must also enjoy working with children and young adults. Instructional format classes taught by centre staff typically include: demonstrations; practice sessions; role playing; group discussions; audio-visual presentations; observation periods; and in-class activities, and assignments.
