UBCCC North and South are training
sites for Erie Community College Lab II & III interns and
student teachers. Students are in the centers for a five week
placement, three days per week.
While in the classroom, the Lead
Teacher acts as their mentor and supervising teacher, and the
students participate in daily classroom activities. Students are
required to write lesson plans and carry out some of their planned
activities. If a student requests to use pictures or other
information about a child, the parent will be contacted and
permission to do so will be requested.
Interns are never counted in the
classroom ratios or left alone with children. They submit to
background checks and have medical clearance through ECC. Many have
completed CPR & FA training as part of their ECC coursework
when they are placed at UBCCC. They can be identified by their
maroon aprons and nametags.
