How do you Apply for Jobs in BC's Catholic Schools?

When you apply to teach in BC's Catholic schools, you apply to a regional Catholic diocese rather than a school board or school district. For example, if you're interested in a teaching position at St. Patricks' Regional Secondary in Vancouver, you send your application to the Catholic Independent Schools of Vancouver Archdiocese (CISVA). Working with the school's principal, the CISVA's staff reviews and screens applications to find the best candidates.

There are exceptions to this rule. Vancouver College, St. Thomas More Collegiate and Little Flower Academy are the only Catholic schools that do not hire through a regional diocese.

Application Requirements

Most Catholic school employers will request the same documents you'd expect to include in a job application with public schools. In addition to a valid BC teaching certificate, you will also need a pastoral reference form in your job application package. When you're applying to a teaching job, make sure to read the job application requirements carefully because requirements may vary among employers.
