About our Teacher Education Program
Queen’s University is unique in offering a 16-month Consecutive Education program that starts in May 2024 and ends in August 2025.
Teaching divisions we offer:
- Primary/Junior (K-Grade 6)
- Intermediate/Senior (Grades 7-12)
- Technological Education
All Primary/Junior or Intermediate/Senior Queen’s teacher candidates graduate with a specialization. You can apply directly to a Program Track or, after you start the program, you can choose a concentration. As part of this specialization, you will complete an alternative practicum placement outside the typical public school setting, and it can take place anywhere in the world.
Opportunities for funding are available to help teacher candidates gain this international experience. This specialization is an advantage to you as a Queen’s teacher candidate.
We also offer Multi-Session programs. These are full-time, blended on- and off-campus programs over 6 consecutive terms. Multi-Session programs are geared toward those that currently have a qualifying teaching position or are seeking one (e.g., unqualified teacher, teacher on a Letter of Permission). The programs are intended to support school boards in addressing the need for qualified teachers in specific subject areas.
As a Multi-Session candidate, you will gain valuable practical and paid experience in instructional settings that are aligned with the areas of concentration in your program of professional education.
* Program offering is contingent upon funding and adequate enrollment.
