The North Vancouver School District
values the professional experience you've gained outside of
B.C. However, to work in any school district in B.C., you will first
need to obtain your B.C. Teaching Certification and Teacher
Qualification Service (TQS).
The B.C. Teaching Certification
is acquired through the Teacher Regulation Board of B.C. For more
information on the process and the steps required to apply, please visit Teaching in British Columbia.
If you are planning to work in the B.C. public school system, you also need to apply to the Teacher Qualification Service (TQS)
for a category that helps determine your salary level. A copy of your
teaching certificate will automatically be sent to the TQS.
If you are moving to B.C. from another province or from outside of
Canada, please apply six months to one year before you arrive.
