Welcome to Teacher Education at SFU

Preservice Professional Studies (PPS) is the Faculty of Education’s teacher certification component.

Our five, highly-regarded teacher education programs — PDP, PLP, PQP, AHCOTE and HEART — have been designed for aspiring elementary and secondary school teachers in British Columbia who need to complete the provincial certification requirements and get their teaching certificate.

A B.C. teaching certificate is not only needed to teach K-12 in B.C. public schools; it is also accepted in many countries around the world.
