Counselling Psychology and English as a Second Language (ESL) are not acceptable
subjects for initial certification in BC. Generally these teaching areas are developed
as additional subjects, after completion of the initial teacher education program.
You will need one of the subject areas listed above in order to qualify for certification
in BC if being assessed for secondary school level. If you hold a current, valid,
unrestricted teaching certificate from another Canadian province or territory, you
will likely qualify for a Professional Certificate under the Canadian Free Trade
Agreement (CFTA), even if you do not have an acceptable teaching subject area.
