What are Basic Qualifications?
These are the qualifications teachers receive after their initial teacher education program. To be licensed to teach in Ontario, teachers need expertise in two consecutive divisions: primary/junior or junior/intermediate or intermediate/senior.
Division - Grades
primary - Junior Kindergarten to 3
junior - 4 to 6
intermediate - 7 to 10
senior - 11 and 12
Since teachers in primary and junior divisions teach all subjects, there are no subject requirements.
Teachers in junior/intermediate must have expertise in one subject specialization in the intermediate division.
Teachers in intermediate/senior division must have expertise in one subject in each division.
There is a list of subjects in the Requirements for Becoming a General Education Teacher in Ontario, which you can download from this site.
