The First Nations Technology Council (FNTC) is looking for passionate instructors and technologists to teach in their Foundations in Innovation and Technology (FiiT) program which is launching in the fall. This is a new initiative that guides students on a path from entry level-certification through to advanced training and work experience opportunities. FiiT is creating a network of Indigenous innovators that are equipped with the skills and certifications required for the digital economy. Through FiiT, thousands of Indigenous students throughout the province will have access to industry-relevant training and creating pathways to having greater participation in the technology and innovation sectors.

Developed with support from industry partners and community leaders, the FiiT program closely aligns labour market demand with areas of study, reflecting both current and projected in-demand careers within the technology and innovation sectors. Extended-length course delivery allows for meaningful learning to take place, while a range of support services (including financial aid, mentorship and academic advising for status and non-status Indigenous peoples) ensure that students have the tools they need for success. 

NVIT and the Technology Council give high priority to Indigenous candidates. All applicants should be experienced in working with Indigenous people and be willing to travel.

Employment is contract based on a 12-week cycle. Compensation is $ 6,316.35 per course (2- week section). If you have an interest in Indigenous education, economic reconciliation and the increased participation of Indigenous peoples in the digital economy, they would love to receive your application.
