Over the past few months, the College has attended several events to raise awareness about how we protect students. Staff were on hand to answer questions at the Dream Big parent conference in Scarborough, the Peel District School Board Parent Conference and the BabyTime Show in Mississauga, the Toronto District School Board Parent Involvement Advisory Committee Conference in Toronto, the District School Board of Niagara Parent Involvement Committee Conference in St. Catharines, and the 2019 Public Education Symposium in Toronto.

At the close of 2018, the AQ (Additional Qualification) provincial writing team gathered for an all-day session to write new course guidelines for Schedule D Science and Technology, Primary and Junior AQ courses. AQ writing teams comprise a diverse group of stakeholders who come together to share ideas, ask questions, raise concerns and voice perspectives.

Last December, the College was at the OISE/UT (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto) Career Fair. We were there to talk to teacher candidates about the licensing process and our scholarship program for teacher candidates. Approximately 5,600 new teachers are licensed annually in Ontario.
