About our Teacher Education Program
At Brock’s Faculty of Education, we give teachers the tools they need to succeed at the head of the class by putting learning at the centre of everything we do.
Teachers change lives. From guiding learners in the digital age to advancing inclusion, equity and justice, a great teacher makes all the difference. That teacher can be you.
The Consecutive Teacher Education program (Bachelor of Education) is available to individuals with a completed undergraduate degree (refer to Acceptable Degree guidelines on our website).
Upon successful completion of the program, teacher candidates are normally recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for membership and to receive their Ontario Certificate of Qualification. The Consecutive Teacher Education program is offered as a 16-month, full-time program over 2 years at both of our campuses.
Our Consecutive Technological Education Teacher Education program (Technological Education – Bachelor of Education [BEd] or Certificate in Education) provides candidates with the professional education necessary to become certified teachers in Ontario.
The program is comprised of 4 terms (16 months in duration). It is delivered in a blended online and in-person format, allowing some students to continue working at least part-time while completing the program.
B10 – Primary/Junior, Consecutive Teacher Education
B20 – Junior/Intermediate, Consecutive Teacher Education
B30 – Intermediate/Senior, Consecutive Teacher Education
B80 – Technological Education
Ensure your application is accurate and complete. You must meet application and document deadlines; deadlines are firm and requests for extensions are not permitted.
Payment of the TEAS fee and the non-refundable Brock supplementary $75 service fee is due by the application deadline. TEAS forwards applications to us only once the OUAC receives both the TEAS and supplementary fees.
B10 and B20 will be offered only at the St. Catharines Campus.
B30 will be offered only at the Burlington Campus.
Application deadline: December 1, 2023
Document deadline: December 11, 2023
If you apply in September or early October, you will receive an acknowledgement email from us in mid-October. This email will instruct you on how to access your Brock student portal, complete your Experience Profile and submit your Teachable Subject Clarification Form (where applicable).
If you apply in mid-October or later, you will receive an acknowledgement email within 2 business days of submitting your application, providing the same information.
Due to the popularity of these highly competitive professional programs, we receive more applications than there are available spaces.
Offers are limited and admission is not guaranteed by fulfilling the minimum requirements. All applicants, regardless of their professional background or academic history, are assessed using the same criteria.
Request official transcripts from all Ontario postsecondary institutions you attend(ed) using the OUAC TEAS online transcript request in your TEAS application. Select “Send Immediately” when you request your transcript.
Brock University graduates who apply to Brock do not need to order or send Brock transcripts.
If you have already completed your studies, have the transcript(s) sent immediately. If you are currently completing studies, arrange to have your transcript sent once you complete your studies. Your transcript should indicate “Degree/diploma conferred”.
For any issues with submitting the final transcript showing “degree/diploma conferred”, email Admissions.
The process of applying and collecting appropriate supporting documents can be time-consuming. The process may take more than 10 to 20 hours.
For B10, B20 and B30 Applicants:
Submit your Teacher Education Experience Profile via your Brock student portal. Your Experience Profile will require that you supply the names of verifiers who will confirm your experience.
It is your responsibility to confirm all details with your verifier prior to listing them as a verifier. If the verifier does not fully confirm all details of the experience on your Experience Profile, that experience will not be accepted as valid.
Visit the Consecutive Teacher Education website for information about verifiers.
For B80 Applicants:
Review the Technological Education website for information about required documents.
If you meet the minimum admission requirements and feel you have been disadvantaged as a result of Indigenous or visible minority membership and/or have been academically disadvantaged due to an extenuating circumstance or disability that impacted your performance, provide a personal statement and we will individually review your application.
If you do not meet the minimum admission requirements, you cannot be considered under the Special Admission Consideration Policy. If you are admitted under this policy, you will be required to meet the same progression and graduation standards as other students.
At Brock, we believe that a diverse and welcoming learning community is built upon the foundation of exceptional students, faculty, staff and alumni. We welcome people of all identities and background from within Canada and around the world.
International applicants are all applicants who are applying from outside of Canada.
If you are submitting international documents, review the international document submission process to ensure you have completed all required steps. In addition to transcripts with English translation, all applicants from outside of Canada must submit a World Education Services (WES) evaluation, which includes details at the course-by-course level, not just the confirmation of a completed credential.
WES assessments usually take 4-6 weeks to process and must be received by the document deadline.
If English is not your first language, you must submit evidence of English-language proficiency. We will automatically notify you on your Brock student portal if you are required to submit an English-language proficiency test result.
Submit your Teachable Subject Clarification Form if you are applying to the Junior/Intermediate (B20) and/or Intermediate/Senior (B30) divisions. The form will be available in your Brock student portal after you submit your application. You may also submit additional course descriptions or syllabi that will help our office identify classes that satisfy your teachable subject requirements.
For Junior/Intermediate (B20) and Intermediate/Senior (B30) applicants only:
- Teachable subject credits that are not completed by the document deadline must show as “In Progress” on the transcript submitted at the time of application.
- Indicating on the TEAS application that you are registered in a course is not sufficient proof.
- It is your responsibility to ensure that “In Progress” courses show on the transcript your institution sends.
In addition to general admission criteria, we reserve the right to select candidates from priority teachable subject areas based on labour market demands.
Successful completion of this program will award a single-subject, Broad-based Technology (BBT) basic qualification in Grades 9 and 10, and Grades 11 and 12, allowing you to teach at the secondary level in your area of expertise.
Broad-based Technology (BBT) Teaching Subjects Offered:
- Communications Technology
- Computer Technology
- Construction Technology
- Green Industries
- Hairstyling and Aesthetics
- Health Care
- Hospitality and Tourism

Only those trades or professions listed can be accommodated in our program, although not all subject areas may be offered each year since demand within the technological education field fluctuates. Offers of admission are made to reflect demand.
Related trades and professions recognized within each BBT.
Applicants apply on the B80 application and are considered for eligibility under the listed pathway combinations for the Technological Education – BEd. Applicants must satisfy one of the combinations of postsecondary education and wage-earning experience to be admitted to the BEd in Technological Education Program. Ensure you review and understand pathway combinations.
Certificate in Education:
If you do not have the listed combinations of postsecondary education and wage-earning experience, but hold an Ontario Secondary School Diploma and a minimum of 5 years of wage-earning experience, including business or industrial experience, where you used skills and knowledge in the area of the BBT education subject you are applying to, you may be considered for admission to the Technological Education program and will be eligible to receive a Certificate in Education.
