Professional Development

Are you interested in taking some professional development but don’t know where to begin?

Throughout the year, the Learning Excellence and Innovation Department regularly searches for professional development opportunities that may benefit staff at Northern College.  Begin by choosing your appropriate category (administration, staff, or faculty) and browse through the list of opportunities provided. If you find something that looks interesting, you may visit the site and information provided for further details. Please speak with your direct supervisor about the options available to you for attending or enrolling in the PD of your choice.  Remember, all professional development must be approved by your supervisor.
