Video interviews with vocational teachers from across the province who explain their journey from being a student getting their DEP (diplôme d’études professionnelles), working in their respective fields for a few years, becoming teachers in a vocational centre and then returning to university to get their teaching degree. The dedication, passion and enthusiasm these professionals express for their love of teaching and helping their students reach their goals is inspiring.
