Frequently Asked Questions
What courses do I need to take to teach at the intermediate level or in high school?
Teaching methodology courses completed in the initial teacher education
program determine the teaching subjects granted to teachers in Ontario with
basic qualifications in the Intermediate and Senior divisions. The complete
list of teaching subjects can be found in Teachers’ Qualifications
Regulation, or in the Additional
Qualification Courses section of our website.
Members of the Ontario College of Teachers can also add Intermediate or Senior
division teaching subjects by completing one or more Additional Basic Qualification
courses. Contact a faculty of education directly regarding the number of university
credits required for admission to an ABQ course in a specific teaching subject.
Teaching subject qualifications are not granted based on academic credits
or degrees in the subject.
