On the occasion of English Montreal School Board Teacher Recognition Day on May 7, eight teachers were presented with special awards from La Cage Brasserie Sportive, as well as certificates and gift cards to Chapters/Indigo. The winners were profiled on television by promotion co-sponsor CityNews Montreal.
The Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC) is a small and lesser-known service offered by the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) – but it packs a punch. The option paves the way for someone with existing skills and knowledge to prove their competencies in a certain trade and more quickly earn their vocational training diploma. And, it’s a way for the province to tap into the wealth of skillsets of people newly arrived in Quebec.
