Frequently Asked Questions


I completed an Additional Qualification course but was awarded a qualification with a different name. Why?

The qualifications that are listed on your certificate are governed by the Teachers' Qualifications Regulation. The College conducted an extensive review of teachers' qualifications, consulting widely with education stakeholders and members. As a result of what we heard about the need for updating and revising some qualifications, a number of changes were made to the regulation.

Some AQs were either revoked from the regulation and are no longer available, or they were renamed. The College no longer has the authority to award these qualifications under their old names. The College has awarded you an equivalent qualification as it appears in the revised regulation.
