Completing the TVDSB Application Form

Please note: It is possible to apply using a mobile device or tablet, however, it is highly recommended that a personal computer be used (Windows or Mac) in order to ensure that all of the form fields are completed and attachments are uploaded. Our application form supports most web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Safari. Please ensure that JavaScript is enabled for whatever browser you use.

Before beginning the application process, it is important to gather all necessary documents. Please read the application instructions carefully and include all requested information. You will usually need:

  • A scanned copy of your educational qualifications in PDF format. (Other acceptable formats include .JPG, and PNG, however, to ensure accurate printing of your documents, PDF is highly recommended.)
  • A list of 3 current and former supervisors to be used as references.

Saving all of the necessary files in one folder on your computer prior to beginning the application form can save you time once you begin the application process. Please name your files in such a way as to identify them both for your own reference and to assist our HR staff. Example: your resume could be called “JaneSmithResume.doc” and your Diploma or Degree could be called “JaneSmithDiploma.pdf”.

Once you have all of the necessary documents ready, the application process only takes a few minutes.

Uploading files:

At each stage where a file upload is required, click on the browse button next to the text field. Using the window that opens, navigate to the folder where you have stored your application files and select the appropriate file. Maximum total size of all attachments submitted must not exceed 30 MB.

Scanning Help:

Most candidates will already have an electronic copy of their resume, but scanning and attaching your educational qualifications may take some time.

Here are some simple steps to scan documents using a scanner or your mobile device:


  1. Follow the directions in your scanner documentation or software to create a PDF version of your document
  2. Save the file on your device in a folder where you can easily access it for uploading to the application form.

Mobile device:

  1. Place the document you want to scan on a flat surface, like a desk or table.
  2. Open the scanner app on your phone, then follow the instructions that appear.
  3. The document will be saved as an image or PDF file on your device.

If you don’t have a scanner app installed on your phone, you can download one from your mobile app store. There are many applications to choose from, but they all work in the same basic way.

Some candidates may have more than three items to upload as proof of education. We encourage as much information as possible to support your educational achievements. If you have more than 3 items, simply combine items into one or more files to comply with the three-file maximum.

If you have technical difficulties with the application form please contact our Applicant Management System service provider at:
