Program Overview

Candidates in this program will take courses over two summers and an Internship/Practicum, undertaken in the candidate’s home teaching location, whenever possible. Courses will be designed to be meaningful to candidates regardless of their broad-based discipline. Assignments, however, will be discipline-specific. The program will be offered over a 14-month period in two summer institutes with the Internship/Practicum being completed during the intervening Fall/Winter school year.

Following successful completion of Summer I courses and ten (10) days of practice teaching, you will be recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for a Transitional Certificate of Qualification, which allows teacher candidates who find employment within a school board to teach full-time in the Fall/Winter following Summer I.

If you are not teaching on a Letter of Permission as described above, you are required to complete a minimum 80-day practicum placement in your Broad-Based Technological area between Summer I and Summer II. Failure to complete a successful 80-day minimum practicum will result in suspension to Summer II of the program.

Please note: The 80-day minimum practicum will be scheduled into blocks of time during the secondary school year. These placements will take place during the months of September through June at high schools and arranged solely through the Faculty of Education. Every effort will be made to place you in schools in your home district. You will be required to be in attendance full-time in the school during your practicum placements.
