Can Students in a Concurrent Teacher Education Program be Granted the Temporary Certificate?
Teacher candidates may only be granted the temporary certificate if they have applied for membership in the College, supplied all required documents, paid all fees, and meet all registration requirements. These registration requirements include the requirement to hold an acceptable postsecondary degree, which applies to teacher candidates in all Ontario teacher education programs unless they are enrolled in a Native Language, First Nations, Métis, Inuit Ancestry or technological education initial teacher education program.
The post-secondary degree must be granted to an applicant prior to the granting of the temporary certificate. This registration requirement is the same for any type of certificate issued by the Ontario College of Teachers.
