Post-Graduate Certificates for Ontario Teachers

To support Ontario teachers in their desire to provide enriching and holistic learning opportunities for students, Queen’s Continuing Teacher Education is now offering postgraduate certificates.

These certificates are comprised of five AQ and ABQ courses approved by the Ontario College of Teachers. Certificates are based on specific challenges that Ontario teachers face in the classroom. Our courses are created and instructed by experienced Ontario teachers from across the province. Each course is infused with Ontario Ministry of Education policies, OCT regulations, and current research-driven theory.

The following Ontario post-grad certificates are eligible:
