Review of the Standards for the Education, Competence and Professional Conduct of Educators in BC


The British Columbia Teachers’ Council is currently reviewing the Standards for the Education, Competence and Professional Conduct of Educators in British Columbia. The Standards serve to guide the practice of BC educators and to communicate to the public the conduct and competence expected of educators as they carry out their work.

In the spring of 2016, the Teacher Regulation Branch asked for your feedback on the Standards through an online questionnaire to support the Council review. The questionnaire has now closed, but we would like to thank those of you who provided responses.

  1. What do you see as the strengths in this Standard?
  2. What could further strengthen this Standard?
  3. Do these Standards reflect what you expect educators in British Columbia to embody? Why or why not?

Your input will be considered as the Council works to ensure the Standards accurately describe what it means to be an educator in British Columbia.
