HOW TO BECOME A CPA PEP SESSION LEADER
As trusted participants in a student's journey, CPA PEP Session Leaders guide students through the CPA PEP. Session Leaders will lead the two-day (Saturday and Sunday) face-to-face session for a module. Session leaders must have a CPA designation or a legacy designation and a university degree, as well as previous in-person teaching experience. It is highly recommended that session leaders also facilitate at least one session, as preference will be given to members with facilitation experience.
There are two steps involved in becoming a session leader:
- Shadow an existing session leader. This involves attending an entire module workshop for a particular module, reviewing and familiarizing yourself with the material, observing the session leader, leading at least two activities and working with the students throughout the weekend.
- Upon successful completion of the shadowing weekend, applicants will be required to attend a session leader training session in Toronto. The timing of which will depend on projected student enrolment in the program. Those applicants who have successfully completed step 1 above will be contacted directly for the next training session.
New applicants need to submit an application through the members’ portal. Under ‘Applications’, select ‘Start New Application’ and follow the steps to upload a resume and submit your application. Resumes should highlight previous teaching experience, as well as provide any teaching-related references or survey results.
Participating in steps 1 and 2 above depend on projected student enrolment in the program. CPA Ontario will contact new applicants as space permits.
