The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District, in cooperation with the Faculty of Education at Memorial University, has adopted the Diplome d'etudes en langue francaise (DELF) certification, as an objective measure of teachers' Frenchlanguage proficiency. DELF certification is replacing the oral and written Proficiency assessment formerly administered by the District.

DELF certification will be required for French Immersion, Intensive Core French and Core French teaching positions commencing in September of 2016. All teachers, both permanent and term, who have previously been assessed by the District, and approved for French immersion and ICF positions, are not required to provide DELF certification. Written notification of status will be issued to these teachers.

The preferred standard for French positions is that teachers have an average of 70% on the DELF B2 with at least 60% on each of the four components of the DELF B2. Candidates who have not met the preferred standard may still apply and be considered for French teaching positions on the criterion of proficiency and in accordance with Article 6.03 of the Provincial Collective Agreement.

The District also looks for a minimum of 9 French Language courses.

For more information on DELF examination sessions, including schedules and sites, candidates should e-mail: sforward@mun.ca or telephone (709)864-2494. The DELF Centre is located in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Memorial University, St. John's campus, in room SN4027.


All applicants must have at least one completed Candidate Reference Check submitted to their profile in order to apply for any position under the Educational Opportunities.

Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check FAQ's for Substitutes

  • Does this apply to returning substitutes?
    Yes, anyone who applies to the "new list" for September of each year.

  • In the past, there was a period that substitutes had to do a Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check each year. Then for a while they only had to sign the digital Declaration saying they were not being investigated, etc. What is the difference?
    The Declaration will be sufficient if the teacher was in a term/replacement position on the last day of the previous school year and started a position on the first day of the new school year. The important point here is that they don't always know if they are going to be successful in getting a position so it is better to have a new Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check.

  • How long is a Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check valid for?
    The Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check is valid for 6 months from the date stamped by the RNC or RCMP.

  • Does this mean I have to get a new code of conduct every 6 months?
    No. This means that at the time of application for any sub list, you need to have a current Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check uploaded on your profile.

  • What about when I finish another degree half way through the year?
    Any time you apply for a new substitute list, you have to be holding a valid Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check.

  • Because of the 6-month expiry time limit, do substitutes essentially have to apply for 2 documents each year?
    No, this only applies at the time of application and if they have already been approved on the sub list they are good for the year.

  • If I already have a Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check uploaded, do I need to get an updated one?
    As long as the Code of Conduct/Vulnerable Sector Check that you have on your profile is still valid, we will honor that one. However, if the date is beyond the 6 month mark, you will need to apply for a new one. It is important to keep in mind that it is better to have it updated ahead of time so that there is no delay in processing an application.

  • How about waiving the $20 fee for substitutes to get this record check done?
    NLESD does not compensate for these fees. The substitutes will have to pay for this themselves.

  • Will you accept a Vulnerable Sector Check with another organization's name other than NLESD under the Reasons for the Consent?
    Vulnerable Sector Check forms must have NLESD as the Name of the Person or Organization on your Vulnerable Sector Check request. We cannot accept Vulnerable Sector Checks for a different organization, such as one for a volunteer position.
