TESL Ontario, established in 1972, is a non-profit organization serving the needs of teachers of English as a Second Language and English Literacy Development. In its commitment to professional development and advocacy, TESL Ontario addresses the range of competencies, experiences, and issues which influence the success of immigrants, refugees, visa students, and others who are learning English.
TESL Ontario is pleased to announce that through a contract with the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, TESL Ontario will develop a new process for the recognition of prior learning (RPL) for Internationally Trained Instructors of adult English as a Second Language to replace its existing PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment Recognition). The new RPL system will include a competency-based process as well as the current credit-based system.
