What are online accredited education sites?
Online accredited schools are online educational services which are registered with a certification agency (e.g. the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, or ACCICS) that can be verified by online examiners, or accredited teachers.
These accrediteors have the authority to issue certificates and diplomas for teachers, and in some cases, to provide online teaching resources.
Some accreditised schools are also registered with the International Board of Teachers and the Association of Canadian Educators.
Accreditation is the process that determines whether a school meets the standards of accreditation.1A: Online accredited schools are accredited by accreditable organisations accredited by Accredited Accreditation Council for independent colleges and schools.
These organisations have the ability to issue a certificate and diploma for teachers.
Accredited teachers are responsible for the online education materials.2B: Online accreditation is a non-academic process.
Teachers are responsible only for the material they teach, and not for the content of their students’ learning.3C: Accreditation and online schools are a form of certification and the same accredits and accreditors can apply to register with them.4D: Online learners can be considered for accreditation or not.
If they do not meet the standards required for accreditation, they can be refused accreditation, but if they do, they are entitled to compensation, which may be in the form of tuition fees.5A: If you have already been a certified teacher, you do not need to register.
Accreditors have been providing online accreation for teachers since 2003.
This is the earliest period in which accreditation was widely available, and the earliest accreditation has been online.
Accreditation is available to accredited teachers across Canada, and online teachers can obtain it through the Accreditation Review Board, which operates under the Canada Accreditation Network (CANN).
The Accreditation review board has issued accreditation to online accredits since 2004, and accreditation in 2018.
Accreditors must have a minimum of 10 years of teaching experience, have been in teaching for at least five years and be recognised by the board as being of good standing by the Canadian Association of Teacher Education (CATE).
In 2018, there were approximately 25,000 accredited online educators across Canada.6B: Accredited online educators are paid, and their fees cover the cost of their teaching, and also cover the costs of maintaining their school.
If a school fails to meet the minimum requirements of accredi- tation, it can be withdrawn from accreditation at the earliest opportunity.7C: Teachers must apply to be accredited online, and a student can only receive a letter from a qualified teacher certifying that they are eligible to teach in a school.
This letter is valid for a minimum period of time.
If you are unsure of whether a student meets the requirements, you should check the website of the school, or the accrediter’s site.8D: Teachers are required to keep records of their work, and students are required only to record their experiences.
Teachers should be careful about providing information on a website, such as the name of the person or organisation that they have worked with or which their students work for.
Teachers can also request a copy of their record.
Teachers may not be asked to take a picture of students.
Teachers who are concerned about a student’s behaviour may be asked by their employer to report that student to police.9A: Accreditor certifications are not required for teachers to teach online, although accreditation may be required.
If your school fails the requirements for accredit- ment, you can apply for a letter of recognition from a certified online educator.
A certified online teacher is a teacher who has passed the requirements of a certifying agency, and who has received accreditation through the ACCIT, which is the accredited accredicat- tion body for accredited online learners in Canada and other countries.
The ACCIT certifies teachers who have passed the accreditation criteria set out in the Canada Teachers’ Association’s accreditation guide for teachers of the highest level of training, which include: Teaching,
