The professional development programs of the Faculty of Education, namely additional qualifications (AQ) and additional basic qualifications (ABQ), aim to provide courses of the highest professional quality. Each additional qualifications course reflects the Ontario College of Teachers' Standards of Practice for the teaching profession.
Additional qualification courses provide teachers with opportunities to enhance their teaching skills using current, research-based instructional and assessment strategies. Teachers develop their abilities to teach an increasingly diverse range of learners and, with qualifications to teach in additional divisions/subject areas, their career choices are broadened.

IMPORTANT: Our additional qualification (AQ) and additional basic qualifications (ABQ) programs are currently under review for the year 2017-2018. Consequently, the offer of AQ and ABQ courses is suspended this Fall 2017. Information about a revised program will be available during the Fall.
