Covenant Canadian Reformed Teachers College offers three programs of study: Two programs in preparation for a teaching career in Reformed schools, and one professional development program for practising teachers, the Certificate of Reformed Education Program.
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 Teaching and the Diploma of Education provide the student with a firmly principled, soundly theoretical, and highly practical teacher education program. In order to give structure to this commitment, the College patterns its diploma level expectations on the Guidelines for degree level expectations developed by the Ontario Council of Academic Vice Presidents (OCAV, 2005/2007). Course syllabi reflect the categories identified by the OCAV and courses are designed to help students meet the objectives for:
- Depth and breadth of knowledge
- Knowledge of methodologies
- Application of knowledge
- Communication skills
- Awareness of limits of knowledge
- Autonomy and professional capacity
