Verification of judicial records of teaching staff
All applications for a teaching licence or a licence renewal must be accompanied by a Declaration Concerning a Judicial Record. Persons holding a teaching licence must inform their employer and the Ministère de l’Éducation of any change in their judicial record within 10days of being notified of the change.
In addition, it is the responsibility of employers to ensure that all school staff who are regularly in contact with their students do not have a judicial record relevant to their functions.
The purpose of the verification of judicial records is to ensure the safety and physical and psychological well-being of students while respecting the rights and freedoms of teachers.
