Changes effective September 1, 2010
Amendments to the Regulations – AMPA 2010
A number of amendments to the Certification Regulations were passed by the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly in March 2010.
Two of these changes may produce positive effects on re-evaluations for current members.
All teacher and occasional teacher members are encouraged to review these changes to ensure familiarity with new opportunities for upgrading their Group placement.
Members may see positive changes to their Group placements or their requirements for advancement under the new rules. Certification Application Form #2 should be completed in order to have a file re-evaluated under the new regulations.
- Master’s degrees awarded on a Pass basis from a number of overseas jurisdictions will be recognized for Group placement.
- Members with a 4 year undergraduate degrees at the Pass level will only require completion of any combination of two Additional Qualifications courses from an Ontario Faculty of Education or university courses (second class average) in order to move from Group 2 to Group 3.
