Additional Qualifiations courses to be retired

The Teachers’ Qualifications Regulation includes planned changes to Additional Qualifications (AQs) available to Ontario teachers. Some courses have been removed from regulation effective August 31, 2012. This applies to Part I, Part II and the Specialist qualification for each of these subjects:

➔ Business Studies — Data Processing

➔ Business Studies — Marketing and Merchandising

➔ Design and Technology

➔ Multiculturalism in Education

➔ The Deaf

AQs for teaching students who are Deaf or hard of hearing are now available in a two-semester format.

If you currently hold a qualification in a subject on the list, you will continue to hold that qualification and it will continue to appear on your Certificate of Qualification and Registration.
