Tyndale’s Bachelor of Education program is accredited by the Ontario College of Teachers.
Tyndale received initial consent from the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities in 2007 and initial accreditation from the Ontario College of Teachers to offer a Bachelor of Education program to prepare teachers for employment in primary, junior and intermediate divisions in 2008. Since then, Tyndale’s B.Ed. program has been accountable to the regular review processes required by each regulatory body.
