For admission consideration, you will need to successfully complete the Education 2500 course and practicum (or its equivalent) and receive a favourable recommendation from the instructor prior to admission to the Faculty of Education.
Those who feel they already have the equivalent experience can submit a request for a waiver of Education 2500. You will need to have completed a minimum of 120 hours of experience in a Grade 1-12 Canadian classroom setting under the supervision of a certified teacher. You must provide a breakdown of your teaching assignment(s) and include letters of reference from your supervising teacher(s) attesting to your teaching suitability and verifying your hours. Please review the EDUC 2500 Waiver Policy and the Guidelines for Volunteer or Paid Teaching Experience very carefully. The Letter of Request deadline is February 1 and late requests will not be accepted. If you do obtain a Waiver of Education 2500 it will not result in University course credit.
While you may wish to submit a request for a waiver, it is recommended that you take the Education 2500 course.
