Additional Qualifications for Educators

Professional learning is an integral part of the teaching profession. We expect all members will participate in ongoing learning throughout their careers, with the goal of improving outcomes for Ontario students.

The York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB) is an approved provider of accredited Additional Qualification (AQ) courses for Ontario teachers. The courses are open to all Ontario teachers certified by and in good standing with the Ontario College of Teachers who meet the registration requirements prior to the AQ course commencing.   All Fall AQ courses are offered online during the months of October to December (synchronously and asynchronously).  Detailed information about our offerings, registration and payment portal, and policies can be found at our website, will remain open until September 18, 2022.
