There are nine teacher education programs in BC that prepare teachers to teach in the K-12 public school system. The programs range from one to two years and include both theoretical coursework and practical experiences in schools.
The Teacher Regulation Branch is responsible for ensuring that applicants for teaching certificates meet certain standards of qualification and fitness. The teacher education programs must ensure that their graduates meet the Standards for the Education, Competence and Professional Conduct of Educators in BC. The BC Teachers' Council has the responsibility to approve any new teacher education programs proposed in BC.
