Attention B.Ed. Class of 2018
Newly qualified teachers are eligible to enrol in many of our AQ/ABQ courses. Your Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) Certificate of Qualification is your ticket to employment within Ontario's publicly-funded education system. AQ courses allow you to enhance your Certificate of Qualification by adding teachables or demonstrating acquisition of important skills for the classroom. An enhanced Certificate of Qualification sets you apart in the job market and opens the door to more employment opportunities across Ontario.
