Professional Learning Framework

  • The Professional Learning Framework is now available.

Members of the College refine their professional knowledge, skills, practices and values described in the Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession and the Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession through ongoing professional learning. The Professional Learning Framework for the Teaching Profession (PLF) describes some opportunities and processes that support ongoing professional learning for educators. These opportunities have been identified by members of the profession through provincial consultations, surveys, focus groups and written narratives of practice. The Professional Learning Framework for the Teaching Profession (Ontario College of Teachers, 2016) is one component of a collective vision of teacher professionalism in Ontario that was collaboratively created by both the profession and the public.
