Covenant Canadian Reformed Teachers College offers three programs of study: Two full-time diploma programs in preparation for a teaching career in Reformed Christian schools, and one part-time professional development certificate program for practising teachers.
For admission to the two-year program leading to the Diploma of Education, applicants must minimally hold a pass- or honours undergraduate degree from an accredited university (e.g., Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science).
For admission to the three-year program leading to the Diploma of Teaching, applicants must hold a secondary school diploma qualifying them for university entrance.
Practising teachers interested in attending certificate courses are encouraged to contact the College.
Diploma Level Expectations
The programs leading to the Diploma of Education and the Diploma of Teaching provide the student with a firmly principled, soundly theoretical, and highly practical teacher education program. In structuring its Diploma Level Expectations (DLEs), CCRTC follows the Ontario Qualifications Framework (OQF) determined by the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities under the following six headings:
- Depth and breadth of knowledge
- Knowledge of methodologies
- Application of knowledge
- Communication skills
- Autonomy and professional capacity
- Awareness of limits of knowledge
The rationale for these expectations includes the need to be able to compare academic credits from one institution to another. CCRTC’s DLEs apply the OQF in a manner that reflects the College’s mission, ethos, values, and culture.
