Welcome Substitute Teachers!

During the days you substitute teach in NWT K-12 schools you are represented by the Northwest Territories Teachers' Association (NWTTA) and your pay will reflect a 1.4 percent allocation to NWTTA dues.

Your NWT substitue teaching work may be with one, or a combination, of the Government of the Northwest Territories' Divisional Education Councils (DECs) and/or the School Boards of Yellowknife Catholic Schools (YCS) or Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (YK1). Each of these three employers has its own Collective Agreement with NWTTA members.

As a substitute teacher, you have certain rights and responsibilities as outlined in the Collective Agreement specific to your assignment.

The NWTTA believes in having an informed membership.

Should you decide to substitute teach in the NWT, you are encouraged to read these valuable documents as they relate to your place of employment:
