CBC North | Features: Nunavut Sivuniksavut 2013

CBC North | Features: Nunavut Sivuniksavut 2013 | Inuit Nunangat Stories | Scoop.it

CBC North's annual visit to students at Nunavut Sivuniksavut college in Ottawa took place on February 21 and 22, 2013. About 20 students took part in media workshops at Algonquin College. The two-day television and radio courses provide a glimpse of what it's like to work in the media.

First year students learn how to interview, write news stories, shoot for television and edit. They try their hand at reading radio newscasts, and hosting radio programs. They also shoot and edit short TV stories (see the videos on the left)...they have 3 hours to write, shoot and edit the stories, so it's impressive what they came up with.

Students in the media program at Algonquin College volunteer their time to help with the workshops. Journalist Joanna Awa from CBC Iqaluit talked about working at CBC in the North. Lucy van Oldenbarneveld, host of the CBC TV supper hour news in Ottawa, also gave a workshop for the students.

Parents in dark about unlicensed daycare, survey suggests - Canada - CBC News Marketplace | Inuit Nunangat Stories | Scoop.it
Many parents using unlicensed daycare facilities are in the dark about their provider's qualifications, a CBC Marketplace survey suggests.

Northern_Clips's insight:
Marketplace finds parents unsure about first aid, CPR, background checksMarketplace daycare survey (pdf)

http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/media/episodes/2012-2013/whoswatchingthekids/documents/daycare-survey.pdf

Nearly one-third of parents asked didn't know if their provider had CPR training, and 13 per cent said their provider was untrained. Another 22 per cent didn't know if their provider was certified in first aid.

One provider, when asked if she had CPR or first aid training, said she would simply call "991" in case of emergency.

Hiscott says that people running unlicensed daycares can be good providers, but those certifications and checks are important for children's safety and parents' peace of mind.
