News item: Recruiting Qualified Supply Educational Assistants at our Open House

We’re hiring Supply Educational Assistants (EAs) who have experience working with children with special needs to help our students reach their full potential.

If you’ve been working for a year or more to support children learning English, children with health conditions, children with learning or behavioural challenges or other special needs, this rewarding and challenging job could be the perfect fit for you.

Educational Assistants play an important role in our schools by:

  • helping integrate students with special needs into their inclusive classrooms and school communities
  • working with teachers and other EAs to make sure all students meet their full potential


DATE: Tuesday, April 4
LOCATION: Centre for Education, 1 Kingsway NW, main floor atrium 
PARKING: Free visitor parking in the underground parkade

Drop in for one of three info sessions —  at 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., or 5:30 p.m.  —  during the event that runs from 3 to 6 p.m. Each session starts with a 20-minute presentation about how to become a Supply Educational Assistant - Special Needs with Edmonton Public Schools. There will be time after each presentation for questions and answers.


We look forward to meeting you at this drop-in event from 3 to 6 p.m. on April 4. Bring a resume and cover letter outlining your qualifications and experience. If you’ve already submitted your resume within the past six months, we’ve still got it on file — no need to resubmit!
