The College is a destination for delegations from around the world who visit to gather information on a range of education issues. Recently, the College welcomed 53 secondary school principals from South Korea who came to learn about the development of the Principal's Qualification Program (PQP) guidelines and the content, structure and entry requirements for the PQP development courses.

The College hosted a meeting of a provincial writing team responsible for revisions to the guideline for the AQ Teaching Students Who Are Blind/Low Vision. Educators with extensive lived experience supporting learners who are blind or have low vision shared stories about transformative moments that shaped their pedagogy. Watch for revised guidelines, available in 2020.

As part of its mandate, the College regularly takes part in community events to engage and inform the public about what we do. Recently, the College set up an information booth at the Barrie Waterfront Festival, and at Pride in Toronto. At both events, College staff members were on hand to speak with parents about what the College does and how it protects Ontario's students.

As the last academic year wrapped up, College CEO & Registrar Michael Salvatori, OCT, gave the commencement address to teacher candidates graduating from Niagara University. He shared stories from his own experiences as a principal, and touched on the idea that as practising teachers each of the graduates will likely have to learn and adjust on the fly, over the course of their careers.
