The teachers' qualification regulation identifies Additional Basic Qualifications
(ABQs) and Additional Qualifications (AQs) that members of the College earn
by successfully completing courses and programs that update and expand professional
ABQs and AQs are assigned to schedules A, B,
C, D, or E according to their professional learning purpose. The AQ programs
for principals, supervisory
officers and for teachers of students who are deaf
and hard of hearing exist in addition to qualifications in the schedules.
The College develops guidelines for courses,
approves the providers, accredits the courses
and records a successfully completed qualification on a member's teaching certificate.
The College itself does not offer AQ courses or programs.
Some qualifications that existed before August 31, 2008 have been renamed
or discontinued or their guidelines have been revised. The College is working
with education partners to develop guidelines for new qualifications, which
will be posted in draft form for your review and comment
as soon as they are available. Guidelines for some existing qualifications
are also being revised.
Members who have earned a qualification that is being discontinued will continue
to have that qualification listed on their certificate. If the qualification
is a prerequisite to another AQ, the member will not have to take the prerequisite
again. If the qualification is being phased out, those who have taken Part
I will be able to take Part II or Specialist until the phase out is complete.
