The First Nations Technology Council is seeking an engaging Indigenous Instructor to deliver our Foundations pathway to Network Technician training program. Instructors are key ambassadors of the First Nation’s Technology Council, and the emerging Indigenous Innovation Institute. As Indigenous role models, they are the most likely to dispel stereotypes, generate deep awareness of pathways to STEM careers, inspire future generations to enter the field of technology, and equip people currently upskilling and reskilling to be effective leaders within industry. As such, instructors must demonstrate a growth-mindset, heart-centered people leadership, and have an employable technology skill they can offer the community. Ideally our instructors are generalists with 1 area of expertise, so that they can offer both introductory level experiences to a wide range of learners, as well as specialized training to a more niche group of people. As the Indigenous Innovation Institute is digital by design, Instructors must demonstrate confidence when teaching both on the land and online.
