Next Friday, January 30, the OCT will be here to provide you with information about applying for your Ontario Teacher’s Certificate:
~9:00am for IS and TS candidates (arrive between 8:15 and 9:00 to have your student card scanned)
~11:00am for PJ and JI candidates (arrive between 10:15 and 11:00 to have your student card scanned….we will be scanning in the gym for this session to minimize congestion outside of the auditorium)
Because of the changes to the B.Ed. program in 2015, you MUST become certified with the OCT by September 1, 2015. After this date, the new certification requirements (completion of the two year program with additional practicum days) will be in effect….and you will not meet these.
Becoming certified by September 1, 2015 will require that you begin your application early — it is therefore imperative that you attend the OCT session so that you are well-aware of what is required of you.
