SEA AQ overview 


CPCO's Special Education for Administrators AQ is developed and delivered by CPCO Associates (Practising or Non-Practising).

Catholic Principals' Council | Ontario is committed to offering a course that is:

  • Reflective of our Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (OCSGE), the Ontario Catholic Leadership Framework (OCLF), and Catholic Social Teachings

The Special Education for Administrators AQ is available for school administrators and teachers with a desire to extend knowledge, skills, attitudes and practices with design, implementation and assessment in special education through a Catholic leader's lens. 

Candidates enhance their knowledge while completing Four Modules rooted in the domains of the Ontario Catholic Leadership Framework (OCLF) within the context of Catholic Gospel Values. 

While engaging in online and in-class instructional time as well as a job-embedded professional inquiry practicum, connections will be evident between ethical practices, Catholic Gospel Values, the Ontario Catholic Schools Graduate Expectations and the OCLF.
