Undergraduate Concurrent Practicum Years 1-3
Role of Host Professional (Years 1-3)
Host professionals are essential to the successful education of our Concurrent Education candidates in years 1 and 2. Host professionals play a crucial role in helping shape candidates' professional attitudes and instructional approaches. They are exemplary role models and they set standards of excellence for candidates by demonstrating the care and competency that contribute to a productive learning environment for students.
Concurrent Education candidates complete a two-week (or equivalent) Experiences in Education placement in a non-traditional education setting in first year and a three-week (or equivalent) Experiences in Education placement (preferably in a different non-traditional setting) in second year. In first year, candidates mainly observe and assist the host professional in small group and one-on-one settings. In the second year, candidates must co-plan and co-teach three lessons related to the placement.
Role of Associate Teachers (Year 3)
Associate Teachers play a crucial role in helping shape candidates’ professional attitudes and instructional approaches. They are exemplary role models and they set standards of excellence for candidates by demonstrating the care and competency that contribute to a productive learning environment for students.
Concurrent Education candidates complete a three-week (or equivalent) Introduction to Schools placement for their third practicum. The third-year practicum days (equivalent of 15 days) along with all their practicum days in their final BEd year, will count toward their 80-day requirement for certification with the Ontario College of Teachers. Candidates must be placed in their appropriate division and/or teaching subject areas for this block.
Candidates are expected to co-plan and co-teach 5 lessons (preferably three of them consecutively) so the candidate can build on their strengths and make any necessary changes prior to co-teaching the next lesson.

Concurrent Education Placement Information Form
Letter to Placement Employers
The Government of Ontario student training programs requires each placement employer (school) to sign a declaration form regarding coverage under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act and fax a copy to the Practicum Office (Queen’s). Schools placing more than one candidate need only to sign one declaration form.
Some Ontario District School Boards have signed the Employer Letter on behalf of their schools and candidates will not have to take the Employer Letter to their school principal in these boards.
Assessments for Concurrent Education candidates (Years 1 and 2) are different than the assessments for Final Year Concurrent Education and Consecutive Education teacher candidates. All practicum reports are completed and submitted online.
All hosts/associate teachers who are mentoring a Concurrent Education candidates will be provided the URL as well as the UserName and Password to access the practicum reports. If you do not receive the email, contact the Practicum Office.
Honoraria is not paid to host professionals taking Concurrent Education candidates completing their Experiences in Education placement in years 1 and 2. Although it is a mandatory part of the Concurrent Education Program, it is not a Ministry of Education requirement, but a programmatic requirement. It is not formally assessed, nor supervised by Faculty Liaison. Host teachers are eligible for a rebate on the tuition fee for an on-site or on-line AQ or ABQ course, or a Professional Learning Course. Please see below.
Honoraria is paid to Associate Teachers taking Concurrent Education candidates in their Introduction to Schools practicum in year 3 (PRAC 310/311). This three-week Introduction to Schools practicum, along with all practicum components in the Final Year BEd program, will count toward the practicum requirement for OCT certification. Information for Honoraria purposes is now part of the online summative assessment. You will be asked for your OCT number, date of birth and, home address as well as whether the candidate worked with any other teachers during their practicum.
Host Teacher Rebates on Continuing Education Courses
The Faculty is offering a $100 rebate on tuition fee for on-site or online AQ or ABQ course to Queen's Associate Teachers. To be eligible, you must have supervised a Queen's Undergraduate Concurrent Education candidate within the current year, or within the last three years. The rebate must be used within three years of the academic year in which you supervised a Teacher Candidate.
The Faculty is offering a $50 rebate on tuition fee for an online Professional Learning course. To be eligible, you must have supervised a Queen's Undergraduate Concurrent Education candidate within the current year, or within the last three years. Courses such as Brightspace (D2L) in the Classroom; Integrating iPads and Tablets in Teaching and Learning; Gamification in the Classroom; and Teaching the Digital Learner are now being offered through our Continuing Education department. The rebate must be used within three years of the academic year in which you supervised a Teacher Candidate.
Associate Teachers and Schools (BEd/DEd Program)
Over 1100 teachers at approximately 200 Associate Schools are essential to the successful education of our Teacher Candidates. Associate Teachers play a crucial role in helping shape Teacher Candidates' professional attitudes and instructional approaches. They are exemplary
role models and they set standards of excellence for Teacher Candidates by demonstrating the care and competency that contribute to a productive learning environment for students.
Teacher Candidates are assigned to schools as a part of a professional learning community. Each Associate School is assigned a Faculty Liaison. The Faculty Liaison teaches a professional learning course in the Fall and Winter terms. During the Fall and Winter term practicum, Teacher Candidates are expected to meet weekly in their Associate Schools and to report their discussions to their Faculty Liaison. The program fosters learning from experience as a basis for professional learning.
Consecutive BEd/DipEd candidates start in May and complete 18 weeks of regular in-school practicum and 3 weeks of alternative practicum. Final Year Concurrent candidates start in September and complete 15 weeks of regular in-school practicum and 3 weeks of alternative practicum.
As a general rule, teachers should have a minimum of two years of service before becoming an Associate Teacher and/or are eligible for NTIP. To become an Associate School, principals can contact the Practicum Office or contact their District School Board to indicate their interest in working with the Queen’s Faculty of Education program.
Thank you very much for your willingness to serve as an Associate Teacher. We depend very much on you to provide our Teacher Candidates with suitable types of experience as they prepare to enter the profession. We ask that you provide your Teacher Candidate with an appropriate balance of guidance in establishing their roots and freedom to test their wings.
Associated with the practicum is the course PROF 410/411 Theory and Professional Practice. Please assist your Teacher Candidate in arranging a teaching schedule that permits them to meet with other candidates in your school for 3 hours each week during school hours, over the three Fall and Winter practicum components. Each week, the candidates will be engaging in mandatory discussions and collaborative information gathering related to these courses. You will find the questions candidates use each week on our website: please feel comfortable sharing ideas with the candidate in your classroom.
Teacher Candidates should be encouraged to participate in a variety of professional activities beyond their classroom teaching. For release to attend workshops or conferences, we ask you to follow the same practice as for the permanent teaching staff.
The continued development of our program depends on the good will and professional support of many people. We welcome suggestions for improvement in the design of the program, in the ways in which we work together, and in this resource.
Please feel free to call on the Faculty Liaison assigned to your school to support your work.
Practicum Handbooks are updated annually and are sent to all Associate Teachers and Principals upon placement confirmation. If you wish to obtain a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Teacher Candidates' study groups
The two-three hours per week of Teacher Candidate group time (3 hours for Primary-Junior candidates and 2 hours for Intermediate-Senior candidates) is not structured as additional planning time for candidates. The candidates must learn how to balance planning, teaching, and non-school commitments much like experienced teachers. However, candidates also have responsibilities for academic inquiry and reflection. The weekly meeting time allows Teacher Candidates an opportunity to work together on the assignments for their field-based course. Research shows that learning is enhanced when Teacher Candidates have opportunities to discuss their teaching with people at a similar career stage. The meeting time is also invaluable for discussions with the Faculty Liaison.
Teaching placements over the Fall and Winter practicum components
Candidates are often placed in one of their teaching subjects (secondary) or in one of either primary or junior divisions (elementary) during the two consecutive Fall practicum components. Teacher Candidates will have an opportunity to gain experience in their other division during the Winter or Summer 2 practicum component. Meanwhile, the candidate benefits from an extended placement in one subject or division.
Outdoor and Experiential Education candidates may complete the Winter or May practicum component in an Outdoor or Experiential Education setting, pending availability. Candidates will be returning to their Associate School for the other block of practicum.
*Candidates in the Indigenous Teacher Education (ITEP) candidates may not be returning for the Winter practicum component as they may elect to be placed in a First Nations school or a school with a large Indigenous student population. Candidates will return to their Associate School for the Summer 2 practicum component.
Focus courses (FOCI) are courses that allow Teacher Candidates an opportunity to begin building an area of expertise. They are intended to be practice-oriented and 'hands-on'. A few examples are: School Leadership, Teaching At-Risk Adolescents and Young Adults, Teaching Exceptional Children, and Outdoor and Experiential Education. The Alternative Practicum relates to the candidates FOCI course.
Teacher Candidates are encouraged to make a reasonable contribution to extra-curricular activities. They may also co-direct or co-coach with an Associate Teacher but should not have sole responsibility for a team or activity. The co-directing or co-coaching arrangement is especially important in cases where the on-campus instructional periods may coincide with playoffs or other culminating activities. Activities that take candidates away from teaching time for more than one day are discouraged as candidates must meet the Ministry's mandatory number of teaching days for certification.
Assessments for Final Year Concurrent Education and Consecutive Education Teacher Candidates are different than the evaluations completed for Concurrent Education candidates in Years 1 and 2). The third practicum for Concurrent Education candidates now counts toward the mandatory teaching days for OCT certification. The assessment is very similar to the summative assessment for the Introduction to Schools assessment for the BEd program.
Teacher Candidates and Associate Teachers should approach the assessment based on reasonable expectations for a Teacher Candidate at each stage in their BEd/DEd year. Each practicum component is graded separately therefore, it is imperative that the online summative assessment be completed by the last day of the practicum block. It is important to discuss the assessment with the Teacher Candidate prior to submitting so there are no surprises once the candidate receives their copy.
Once completed online, the assessment will be verified by Practicum Office staff and a PDF version of the assessment will be emailed to the Teacher Candidate, Associate Teacher and Faculty Liaison.
During the second half of Fall practicum, as well as the Winter and Summer 2 practicum components, Associate Teachers complete an online Interim Formative report at the mid-point of each 4-week practicum. Once completed and submitted, a copy will be emailed to the Teacher Candidate, Faculty Liaison, as well as back to the Associate Teacher. The Interim Formative report gives as well as the Candidates' self-assessment is used as feedback to the candidate and Faculty Liaison, on how the candidate is progressing at the mid-point of the 4-week practicum components. It can also be used as a starting point for conversation regarding suggestions for improvement.
Due dates for submission of the online assessments can be found in the Handbook and vary from year to year. The URL for the online assessments is emailed to Associate Teachers upon confirmation of placement.
The Associate Teacher should contact the Faculty Liaison and/or the Practicum Office at any time there is concern that the candidate is having difficulty and their success in the practicum is in jeopardy. The Faculty Liaison and Associate Teacher will complete a Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty form outlining reasonable and realistic recommendations for sustained improvement, to be demonstrated by the Teacher Candidate within 3-5 days. The Associate Teacher and Faculty Liaison must keep appropriate documentation regarding all areas of inadequate progress to provide detailed recommendations for improvement on the Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty form.
Candidates should have a minimum of 5 days remaining in the practicum component to have 3-5 days to fulfill the recommendations for improvement. The number of days will be negotiated between the Associate Teacher, Faculty Liaison and Teacher Candidate.
Candidates must receive an Overall Rating of Progressing Toward Expectations in the Fall term and a minimum overall rating of Meets Expectations in the Winter and Summer 2 terms, in order to be successful.
A candidate who is receives an overall rating of Inadequate Progress on the Interim Formative Assessment in the Fall, Winter or Summer 2 practicum components must be assisted with a formal Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty process, to try and achieve a successful overall rating on the summative assessment. Candidates who are not achieving a minimum overall rating of Meets Expectations in the Winter and Summer 2 practicum components, are not meeting the required expectations for professional practice required by Queen's University.
If the candidate is unable to fulfill the recommendations for improvement in the allotted 3-5 days for which the Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty form was initiated, the overall rating must be Does Not Meet Expectations, and the practicum component will be graded as Fail. For further information regarding this process, please refer to this year’s Practicum Handbook.
Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty forms (Parts 1 and 2)
Once a Supporting a Candidate in Difficulty process is initiated, both Parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfil the process in its entirety. Part 2 must contain the rating which will be given on the corresponding Summative Assessment.
Starting September 2021, honoraria is based on $40/per week/per candidate, pro-rated if a candidate works with more than one teacher in a given practicum component.
Associate teachers will be asked for their OCT number and other pertinent information for honoraria purposes while completing the summative assessment at the end of each practicum.
Honoraria for both the Summer 1 and Summer 2 terms will be paid in late June.
Honoraria for the Fall practicum component will be paid in late January.
Honoraria for the Winter practicum component will be paid in late May.
*Please Note: If honoraria paid in September puts the yearly honoraria total for an individual over $500, a T4A must be issued which will require a SIN number. Teachers will be contacted by email for their SIN number, date of birth and, address.
Honoraria is not paid for the Alternative Practicum because, although it is mandatory, it is not a formal practicum. The Alternative Practicum is a programmatic requirement, not a Ministry requirement.
Associate Teacher Rebates on Continuing Education Courses
Queen's University Faculty of Education is offering a $200 rebate toward tuition fees for an online AQ or ABQ course for Queen's Associate Teachers.

Associate Teacher & Associate School Awards
Associate Teacher awards are given annually to up to five Associate Teachers for outstanding contributions to the Faculty of Education and its Teacher Candidates. The awards recognize Associate Teachers whose programs and mentoring are exemplary, and whose commitment has resulted in excellent practicum placements for our candidates. Nominations may be made by Principals, Teacher Candidates, the Practicum Office, Associate Teachers and Faculty members.
Associate School awards for support of Teacher Candidates are given annually to one elementary and one secondary school participating in the Bachelor of/Diploma in Education Program. Associate Teachers who work directly with our Teacher Candidates are critical to the process, but so is the leadership of the principal, the friendliness and service provided by the support staff and all of the encouragement and assistance by the teachers who are not acting as associates. Nominations may be made by Teacher Candidates, the Practicum Office, and Faculty Liaisons.
To nominate an Associate Teacher or school, send a nomination letter (or email) outlining the qualities and attributes you feel demonstrate the type of mentoring, and/or environment conducive to learning, nurturing, community, and well-being. Letters should be submitted to the Practicum Office in person or by email email@example.com.
The selection of recipients will be made by a committee that represents Associate Teachers, Teacher Candidates, the Practicum Office and Faculty.
