College Leadership Learn more about the people who lead the College.
Members of the College are as committed to learning as they are to teaching.
Ongoing professional learning is an integral part of teaching. The profession’s
standards reflect the expectation that all members will participate in ongoing
learning. Adding to professional knowledge enhances teaching practice, which
improves student learning.
Each year, thousands of Ontario teachers engage in a wide range of learning
activities that help members expand their knowledge, increase their skills
and prepare for career changes. Many valuable courses and opportunities are
offered by universities, colleges, teacher federations, principals’ organizations,
school boards, subject organizations and community organizations.
The regulated system of Additional Basic Qualifications (ABQs) and Additional
Qualifications (AQs) is one form of professional learning. ABQs/AQs are set
out in legislation, accredited by the College, offered by providers approved
by the College and, when successfully completed, recorded on the member’s
Certificate of Qualification and Registration.
The College is committed to encouraging accessibility to these courses because
of the unique educational value they offer to College members.
The courses members take that lead to ABQs/AQs – designed by teachers
for teachers – reflect the experience and pedagogy of the teaching profession
in Ontario. The additional qualifications listed on a teacher's Certificate
of Qualification and Registration are one way of demonstrating their dedication to teaching and to providing
their students with the best education possible.
