Probationary period

The probationary period is a period of professional practice by the end of which the competencies of the applicant for a teaching diploma will have been evaluated.

The probationary period consists of a maximum of 900 hours of teaching in a recognized educational institution; it may, however, be reduced to a minimum of 600 hours if the applicant has achieved all the objectives of the probationary period.

You need to do the probationary period only if it is a condition stated on your teaching permit.

Serving a second probationary period

An applicant who fails a probationary period may send a written application for a second probationary period to the Minister within 60 days of receiving the notice of failure.
