During your studies:
The program of study requires successful completion of practicum assignments in schools. School boards require teacher candidates placed in Ontario schools to submit a criminal record check (CRC) including the vulnerable sector prior to having direct contact with students. Without a satisfactory criminal record check (CRC), you will not be allowed to participate in community service learning and practicum. The document must be valid and cover the entire academic year of the program (August 26 - April 30).
Consult the Office of risk management to learn the requirements and steps to follow for police vulnerable sector screening check. Should you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ontario College of Teachers also requires a valid police record check to fulfill its registration requirements for professional accreditation. Visit the OCT website for more information (search for “criminal record check”).
