At this site you will find detailed information regarding admissions requirements and will be able to access the Technological Education Experience Profile package.

Applicants must print and complete the Experience Profile and submit it with other required documents by the deadline date.

The Experience Profiles will not be mailed to applicants but are available on-line through the TEAS application site at www.ouac.on.ca/teas or at our web site www.brocku.ca/registrar/admissions/

Applicants are required to complete an Experience Profile package (found on our website), which includes at least two teaching and/or teaching related experiences. Each experience must be a minimum of 50 hours by the application deadline to be considered valid. The purpose of this teaching-related experience is to demonstrate an applicant’s interest in and aptitude for teaching. These two experiences are in addition to the wage-earning experience which is required of an applicant to the Technological Education program.

The wage-earning experience is a minimum admission requirement and refers to business or industrial experience, where the applicant used skills and knowledge in their selected broad-based technology subject. This experience is required in accordance with requirements set out by the Ontario College of Teachers for Technological Education teachers. It displays proof of competence, advanced knowledge and skill in the broad-based technology subject selected by the applicant.
