TESL Ontario Approved Post TESL Certificate Training (PTCT)
Post TESL Certificate Training (PTCT) offers instructors an opportunity to further their knowledge and skills in specialized content areas such as designing and developing teaching materials, Occupation Specific Language Instruction, teaching pronunciation, Canadian Language Benchmarks, and teaching English for Academic Purposes. These PTCT content areas have been identified as high priority through Ontario-wide consultation in the past year.
To sign up for a PTCT course, please contact the PTCT course providers by phone or email directly, or check their websites. A list of approved PTCT courses, along with the names of the training providers and their contact information, is available at http://ptct.teslontario.org/ under the COURSES tab and at http://www.teslontario.net/PTCT-courses.
Instructors who work full time or part time for a CIC-funded program (LINC, ELT, or OSLT) in Ontario, including those who are currently on maternity leave but will be returning to their teaching positions in CIC-funded programs in Ontario, are eligible for PTCT training fee reimbursement. To book a reimbursable seat in the PTCT course of your interest, please visit the TESL Ontario PTCT Fee Reimbursement Administrative System at http://ptct.teslontario.org/, and follow the instructions on the HOME page. It's an easy process that may take 10-15 minutes to complete. If you are eligible for PTCT fee reimbursement, please book a reimbursable seat in the course of your choice before signing up for it.
PTCT course graduates who hold valid TESL Ontario Accreditation are eligible for the TESL Ontario Certificate of Achievement. To apply for this certificate, you will need to mail, email, fax, or deliver a copy of your PTCT course certificate to TESL Ontario.
If you have any questions, please contact Reza Mazloom-Farzaghy, Accreditation Services Manager, by email at [email protected] or by phone at 416-593-4243, ext. 205.
