The Catholic Education Office recognises that all people are lifelong learners. With this in mind, it offers appropriate and supportive pathways for the preparation and ongoing professional learning of its teachers, especially in Religious Education, and for the professional and spiritual formation of those who will lead our schools into the future.
“Teachers in Catholic schools... are in a most privileged position... which requires careful preparation, a facility for reflection, and a constant readiness for professional renewal and conversion of heart. Such teachers bring to their task an extraordinary giftedness and a profound sense of mission.” (cf The Catholic School, n78; The Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School, n22; Declaration on Christian Education, n8)
In supporting our teachers and leaders, the Catholic Education Office provides some assistance for costs of postgraduate study in Religious Education and Theology.
