Concurrent Teacher Education Program - Bachelor of Education



To teach in Ontario's publicly funded schools, you will need to become a member of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) and receive an Ontario teaching certificate. If you have questions about the process, the OCT offers information sessions on the registration process to obtain your Ontario teaching license in December as part of the Professional Preparation Conference.

The OCT provides detailed application instructions on their website. The steps below are intended to help you navigate OISE and U of T processes in relation to your OCT application.  

OCT Application Process

Step 1: Apply to the OCT online.

  • This can be done at any point during the CTEP program, but most teacher candidates apply around December of their final year. 

Step 2: Provide your OCT number to OISE.

  • When you apply, the OCT will issue you a temporary number that will be used to track your application. You must submit this number to OISE so that you can be recommended for certification. 
  • Current CTEP Students: Submit your OCT number on your candidate record in Pepper by logging into a course, then clicking on the Practicum button. Don't have a Pepper account? Submit your number on SUPO.

Deadline: May 31, 2017

Step 3: Send Documents to OCT

  • Send required documents to OCT as per their instructions. 
  • U of T Transcripts can be ordered through ROSI/ACORN and sent directly to OCT.
  • Be sure to set the print date for your transcript to after convocation (June 22, 2017) so that your transcript will show that the degree has been conferred. 

Step 4: Report from Faculty

  • For those who already hold their partner degree, in early June, OISE will issue the "Report from Faculty," recommending teacher candidates who have completed all requirements of the B.Ed. Those who are convocating with both degrees this June will be recommended after June 22nd.  You must complete Step 2 by May 31, 2017, in order to be included in the cohort submission. After that point, students must submit a manual request for a "Report from the Faculty" (see below for instructions). 


How to submit a manual request for a "Report from the Faculty"

If you have missed the deadline to be included in the "Report from the Faculty" for your cohort, email us at admitted.oise@utoronto.ca, include:

  • your 6 digit OCT application number
  • your full name
  • your birthdate
  • your program information (teaching divisions and subjects if applicable)
  • your date of graduation
  • your student number
