Incompetence Guide

June 14 2019

The Investigation Committee and Discipline Committee have approved the use of a new guide to assist in their review of incompetence matters arising from unsatisfactory teacher performance appraisals (TPAs).

The guide provides a clear recognition of the connection between the TPA and the College’s standards of practice.

The College receives and investigates complaints against its members related to professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity.

A member can be found to be incompetent when they have displayed in their professional responsibilities a lack of knowledge, skill or judgment or disregard for the welfare of a student of a nature or extent that demonstrates that they are unfit to continue to carry out their professional responsibilities or that their certificate should have terms, conditions or limitations.

The College strives to ensure fair and impartial treatment for its members while protecting the public interest.
