Committees at Work

Quality Assurance Committee

Council’s Quality Assurance Committee assesses the College’s performance related to the objects or purposes established in the Ontario College of Teachers Act. The committee reviews each of these objects and identifies opportuni­ties to further support the achievement of them. It reports, at least, annually to Council.

During 2013, the committee reviewed the College’s objects related to College membership, College members’ ongoing education and the professional standards and ethical standards.

At Council’s request, the committee reviewed a recommendation arising from an independent review of the College’s investigations and discipline practices by former Ontario Chief Justice Patrick LeSage. Recommendation 49 states that members of the Investigation, Discipline and Fitness to Practise committees should be pro­hibited from holding any elected or appointed union/association positions during their tenure on those committees.

The committee provided its report to Council at its April 4-5, 2013, meeting. It recommended that, effective July 1, 2015, concurrent with the term of the 7th Council, all Council members would be prohibited from holding any elected or appointed union/association positions directly related to the protection of the profession, other than at the school level.
