For information on this program, please visit the Technological Education site.

Consecutive Education applicants submit official transcripts of all secondary and post-secondary studies, a Personal Statement of Experience (PSE), and the following 4 documents, after submitting their application to the Teacher Education Application Service (TEAS) of the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC). All documents must be submitted to Student Services by 15 December 2017. See how to apply to Consecutive Education.

  1. A résumé providing a clear and concise overview of both your academic background: specify the highest grade of secondary school attained and any postsecondary education, including start and end dates, and diplomas, degrees, and certificates or trade licenses received; and your work experience: include employer names, start and end dates of work, and a brief description of the position held. Relevant work experience is that which clearly reflects the broad-based technological subject area to which application has been made.
  2. Copies of your certificate(s) of qualification and/or certificate(s) of apprenticeship (if applying to teach a regulated trade). To teach in automotive (Transportation), electrical (Construction) or hairstyling, the applicant must hold a valid trade license. If you are accepted to the Faculty, we will request that you bring in these original documents for validation by Student Services on your first day of classes.
  3. Letters of wage earning experience including your name, your position(s) in the company, the length of work experience(s), with start and end dates, typical hours of work per week, indication as to whether it was full or part-time employment, a description of the work, a detailed description of duties and skills used in the position. These letters must be original signed letters on official company letterhead, with the supervisor’s name, title, address and contact phone number and/or email address. As we cannot return letters to you, we would suggest that you ask your references for additional original copies of their letters for your records and future use.
    If it is impossible to provide original and appropriate documentation, submit a sworn statement or solemn affirmation made before a commissioner of oaths indicating the reason(s) why this information is not available. As well, submit copies of T-4 tax forms or a statement from an accountant to confirm the income and dates of employment.
  4. The Technological Education Applicant Information Sheet.

If you have been self-employed or employed in a family business, applicants are required to submit:

  1. A sworn statement or solemn affirmation made before a commissioner of oaths indicating that the applicant was self-employed in a family business. The statement should include the duration of employment, the actual start and end dates, and the nature of duties (providing specific statements of the skills used in the position).
  2. A copy of business license or registration supporting the duration of employment noted in the sworn statement.
  3. Copies of income tax assessments (which indicate self-employment) supporting the duration of employment noted in the sworn statement, or a statement from an accountant, confirming income, or an annual report.
  4. At least one letter (representing the period of self-employment) from a major supplier attesting to materials purchased and/or a client attesting to the work completed.

All documents submitted become property of Student Services and will not be returned. Successful applicants will require the same documentation to be forwarded to the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) as a part of the application for teacher certification.

Equity Admissions for Bachelor of Education/Diploma in Education

Queen’s University attempts each year to admit a student body reflective of the general population of Canada. The Faculty of Education has developed an admission policy regarding equitable representation of groups that are underrepresented in the teaching profession, and has reserved a number of equity admission places in the Bachelor of Education and Diploma in Education Programs. Those who complete the voluntary Equity Admission form will be considered both under the general admission procedure and under the equity admission policy.

International Transcripts (Bachelor of Education/Diploma of Education Admissions)

For the Bachelor of Education/Diploma in Education, applicants who obtained a degree from a foreign institution (from non-Canadian or American institutions) must have all international official transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES) (ICAP course-by-course assessment).

Note that it can take upwards of six weeks for WES to receive official transcripts from a foreign academic institution, after which point the WES evaluation can take a week or longer to complete. Applicants should begin the evaluation process as early as possible.

Ensure you are on the Canadian page (a maple leaf in the banner). Applicants are responsible for the costs associated with the WES evaluation and any translation required. Applicants must request that WES evaluations be sent directly to Student Services by the official transcript deadline.

If you have questions, please contact Student Services.

Note: the Ontario College of Teachers set their own document and assessment requirements and policies, which may be different from the requirements noted in this policy. Completion of the B.Ed. degree requirements does not guarantee a teaching certificate. All graduates who apply to the Ontario College of Teachers must meet all their requirements. Current licensing requirements may be found on the web at oct.ca.
