- Hold a “Certificate of Qualification” showing successful completion of Part 2.
- Confirmation of Teaching Experience form, signed by a supervisory officer*, confirming two years of teaching experience completed after teacher’s certification. The supervisory officer must also recognize that the candidate has taught in the teaching subject for at least one year. This form must be submitted to our office by the semester deadline date for course approval.
* The Ontario College of Teachers defines “supervisory officer” as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. (A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity).The Superintendent must also recognize on the Confirmation of Teaching Experience form that in one of these years, the candidate has taught in the area of Cooperative Education. For a teacher employed by a private school, the “supervisory official” is the Ministry of Education official (e.g. Education Officer) appointed to provide supervisory services to the school.
