MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
In partnership with Universities and Colleges, SPALYAN Education Group provides students with a rich and diverse learning environment. Knowledge, creativity and hands-on experience have always been at our core. We are proud of the partnerships and relationships we have built to make education accessible for current Indigenous students as well as generations to come. Indigenous ways of learning and knowing are at the core of our methods. SPALYAN Education Group is an Indigenous company that recruits local Indigenous knowledge keepers, creates and delivers Indigenized training programs in community as well as virtually.
Partnership: Queens University
A new partnership between the Centre for Business Venturing (CBV) at Smith School of Business and Spalyan Education Group is bringing business, entrepreneurship and management training to six Indigenous communities in British Columbia.
Local Business School Wins High Praise
We talk to JP Shearer, partnership lead for the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University and June Lulua, founder of Spalyan Education Group, about the business training program customized to Indigenous communities
A partnership between Queen’s University and an Indigenous-owned training agency offers an underrepresented community better access to education.
The Smith-Spalyan partnership program addresses one major barrier to success that Indigenous learners face: the traditional top-down education model, which often concludes with an exam or similar form of testing. This is not how Indigenous students are accustomed to learning. Instead, they learn by doing, communicating, failing, and connecting.
