Ministry Statement on Teacher Education

The Ministry of Education released the statement Modernizing Teacher Education in Ontario on June 5, 2013.

The new program will take effect in September 2015. The biggest change to our existing program is that it will be expanded to four semesters of course work, which will include a minimum of 80 days of classroom teaching experience.

We have been planning for this change since 2011 since former premier Dalton McGuinty made the promise just before the 2011 election campaign, and we will continue to plan to ensure a smooth transition and the best outcomes for our students.

We will continue to post updates on the new program as they become available.
