Procedures for Obtaining an Additional Qualification Certificate
Teachers must complete one of the three programs outlined below to receive an AQC. It is important to note that coursework in an Integrated program must be completed within a six-year time period. The Minister of Education may approve an extension upon application.
An AQC is issued only upon the formal application of the teacher.
The teacher is responsible for ensuring that all the official documents required for an evaluation of his or her qualifications are forwarded by the educational institution(s) to Educator Services. A separate transcript is required from each institution attended.
An evaluation of coursework is made in accordance with The Teacher Certification and Classification Regulations, 2002 and is based upon official transcripts. Diplomas, certificates and statements of marks are not acceptable.
Reclassification will be in accordance with Section 15 of The Teacher Certification and Classification Regulations, 2002.
