Faculty Plus

Recommending Qualifications to College

We regularly receive notifications from you about members of the College who have successfully completed an Additional Basic Qualification (ABQ) or Additional Qualification (AQ).

However, changes to the Teachers' Qualification Regulation came into effect August 31, 2008. As a result of the changes, some qualifications have been renamed or removed from regulation.

The College has determined an equivalent for the renamed or discontinued qualifications, which will be awarded to a member who has completed the relevant course.

The College communicates with each member that has earned a qualification and we will inform them at that time what the qualification is and when it will appear on their record.

Please ensure that the qualifications you recommend to the College reflect the new names in the Teachers’ Qualification Regulation. Codes for new qualifications will be available on Faculty Plus shortly.

If a member of the College would like more information about regulatory changes to Additional Basic Qualifications and Additional Qualifications, they can visit our web site at www.oct.ca or call Client Services at 416-961-8800 or toll-free in Ontario at 1-888-534-2222 or e-mail us at info@oct.ca.
