About our Teacher Education Program

Leaders supporting future leaders in education.

York University’s Faculty of Education provides an environment where you are encouraged to challenge the status quo to uncover new possibilities in the advancement of education. We support you to become bold, principled and insightful leaders, because social justice will not be realized by following the conventional.

As one of the top Faculties of Education in the country, we offer a broad range of programs, research initiatives and community partnerships, all of which embody our commitment to practices of equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization.

We offer the Consecutive teacher education program, leading to the Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree and a recommendation for certification with the Ontario College of Teachers. The program is offered at the York Keele Campus and Catholic Education Centre with TCDSB.

Graduates of our BEd program can teach in K-12 schools and are certified to teach in Ontario in one of the following grade levels:

  • Primary-Junior (JK to Grade 6)
  • Junior-Intermediate (Grade 4 to Grade 10)
  • Intermediate-Senior (Grade 7 to Grade 12)

The BEd is a 2-year, full-time professional degree program. You should expect to be involved in the program 5 days each week, completing a combination of coursework and community and school placements.
