Membership is open to anyone qualified to teach in the province and required to maintain an Ontario teaching certificate. The College is trusted to regulate the teaching profession by setting standards of practice and accrediting teacher education programs. The College also sets the requirements for entry into the profession, investigates complaints involving members and takes appropriate disciplinary action. AT T H E C O L L E G E AQ COLLABORATION Last November and December, the College held several AQ writing team sessions on topics such as the use and know- ledge of assistive technology, teaching students with communication needs (autism spectrum disorder) and Special Education (pictured). The College regularly collaborates with members of the public and the profession on the development of Additional Qualification guidelines. INTERNATIONAL EDUCATORS International delegations of educators from Brazil (pictured above with College Chair Angela De Palma, OCT, left), China, Korea and the Netherlands recently visited the College. They came to learn more about the College's foundations of professional practice, including the Ethical Standards and the Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession, among other things. INFORMING PARENTS College staff members were on hand at baby shows in Ottawa and Toronto to speak with parents about the role the College plays in setting the standard for teaching in Ontario.
