Employment Terms: F/T, 18-Month Contract
Start Date: March 2023
With a commitment to equity and fairness, students learn that what makes us different as individuals makes us stronger as a community. A rigorous academic program is supported by accomplished faculty, exceptional co-curricular programming, and state-of-the-art facilities. The UCC experience is underpinned by five core values: learning, pluralism, service, community, and wellbeing. Among its strategic goals is UCC’s ambition to become more diverse and inclusive. This is supported by a recognition that no learning community is whole without the inclusion and amplification of multiple voices; UCC is committed to fostering belonging, striving for justice and peace among all people, and addressing systemic and structural forms of oppression.
School counsellors work to meet the social and emotional needs of students. They collaborate with students, teachers, parents and administrators to support student learning and wellbeing. Our school counselling program is developmental in nature and comprehensive, focusing on academic, social and personal growth for all students. Specifically, this position will assist Preparatory students, teachers, parents and staff in understanding, preventing and addressing learning, behavioural, developmental and emotional challenges.
In addition to providing responsive services and individual student planning, all Preparatory school counsellors collaborate with teachers to deliver a Health & Life Skills curriculum that includes exploration of topics such as wellbeing skills, character strengths, and content from the Ontario Health and Physical Education curriculum.
