Integrating the Ontario College of Teachers Public Register with TeacherMatch will allow Ontario school boards to utilize predictive analytics in teacher hiring
TORONTO, April 14, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - TeacherMatch will integrate its services with the Ontario College of Teachers Public Register to make way for Ontario school boards to utilize TeacherMatch's advanced talent management system that helps schools identify, hire and develop effective teachers using data and predictive analytics. The integration will allow the TeacherMatch platform to automatically verify a candidate's good standing with the College, a requirement for all Ontario school boards.
"We're thrilled to be able to offer Ontario school boards an innovative, new way to advance, streamline, and facilitate talent management in education," says Ron Huberman, Co-Founder of TeacherMatch and former Superintendent.
This time-saving feature allows administrators at Ontario schools using the platform to be automatically informed if the candidate is an Ontario Certified Teacher on a real-time basis.
"Our alliance with TeacherMatch enables school boards to hire qualified and College-certified, teachers quickly and easily. And that's a big win for the school system and the public that we all serve," says William Powell, the College's Manager of Communications.
The Ontario College of Teachers accredits 51 teacher education programs at 18 university faculties of education in Ontario, ensuring that all starting teachers receive the same initial education based on high ethical and practice standards.
At the core of the TeacherMatch software is the Educator's Professional Inventory (EPI), a revolutionary, research-based hiring tool designed to predict the impact a teacher candidate will have on student achievement.
