The Federation offers many opportunities to get involved. Whether you are interested in joining a committee or administrative board, contributing to curriculum development, or applying to facilitate, we would love to work with you.
Thanks to the volunteers who served on Federation committees and boards in 2016-17. We acknowledge and appreciate the time and effort you put forward. Without the support of our volunteers, we could not be as successful as we are today.

Exploring the Many Pathways to Learning is a resources evaluation project that engages teachers in the evaluation of learning resources for use in Saskatchewan classrooms. Your participation in this project will support teacher colleagues across the province by providing recommendations of resources in real and virtual formats, vetted by teachers, to support Saskatchewan’s diverse learners.
Members are required to evaluate resources for renewed curricula. All terms are effective upon appointment and end August 31 each year with the potential for renewal for an additional one-year term. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their application with their employer. Read more on the curricular areas included, the qualifications required of evaluators and the process for application.
The Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation, through the Saskatchewan Professional Development Unit, has developed the Provincial Facilitator Community to support the lifelong learning of teachers by providing innovative and high-quality professional growth opportunities.
This community consists of a diverse group of dedicated educators who are supported in their understanding of quality professional development and the art of facilitation. In turn, participants plan and facilitate professional learning opportunities in their area of expertise for teachers throughout the province. The areas of focus for 2018-19 include:
- Accreditation – all subject areas
- Math – all levels
- Literacy – elementary/middle years
- Online Teaching
- Early Learning
- Instructional Leadership
Employers are asked to support a minimum of five days of release time to be used as facilitation days by each community member. Substitute teacher costs and travel expenses will be reimbursed based on the principles of reasonable and actual expenses as guided by the Travel Reimbursement for Members. Read more about the community and the benefits of participating.
The deadline for application is February 22, 2018. All applications must include a completed release form, which must be signed by your direct supervisor and superintendent.
