Enhancing Teacher Education

Planning New Teacher Education. Find out about the enhanced program

Initial teacher education – what people learn to become teachers – is undergoing significant and exciting change in Ontario.

Beginning on September 1, 2015, the initial teacher education program at Ontario’s faculties of education will expand to four-semesters and include twice the amount of practice teaching time (80 days, up from 40) and greater attention to students’ mental health and well-being, how to teach with technology, and diversity among other core elements.

The Ontario College of Teachers is proud to take a leadership role in developing the program requirements.

We are also proud to work with the faculties to help implement the program and with the province to make necessary legislative changes.
