Teaching Certification Levels
Students are required to choose from one of three teaching levels:
Y10 Primary-Junior - Applicants do not choose teaching subjects at this level as teachers usually teach all subjects to children.
Y20 Junior-Intermediate - Applicants must choose one teaching subject for the Junior/Intermediate teaching level, and you must have completed at least 4 full‑year undergraduate courses (or equivalent) in the teaching subject selected. We will consider you for admission only if you have successfully completed a minimum of 2 full‑year university courses (or equivalent) with at least a B average for the selected teaching subjects by the December 1, 2023, deadline. If more than the required number of courses have been completed, we will calculate the average using the highest grades.
Y30 Intermediate-Senior - Students are able to complete qualifications in one of the most extensive ranges of teaching subjects in the province. Applicants must choose two teaching subjects and must have completed, or be completing, an Honours program with at least 6 full‑year university courses (or equivalent) in the first teaching subject and 3 full‑year university courses (or equivalent) in the second teaching subject. We will consider you for admission only if you have successfully completed a minimum of 3 full-year university courses (or equivalent) for the first teaching subject and 1 full-year university course (or equivalent) for the second teaching subject with at least a B average by the December 1, 2023 deadline. If you present more than the required number of courses, we will calculate the average using the highest grades.
Please refer to the Faculty of Education Academic Calendars for more details on the three certification levels.
