Pool Hiring - French
Each year, from January to April, the Durham District School Board interviews limited numbers of teacher candidates with qualifications in French. Interviews are conducted on campus or at the Board office, at which time some applicants are offered teaching contracts for unspecified positions. As part of the process, we work closely with selected candidates to ensure a suitable placement based on their preferences.

En plus de la carte de compétence, vous aurez obtenu la spécialisation FSL ou la spécialisation Français (langue maternelle ou langue seconde) en études supérieures. De plus, vous devrez réussir un examen oral et écrit qui vous sera administré au moment de l'entrevue.
