CECV Policy 1.6 Accreditation to Teach in a Catholic School

CTC provides teachers seeking accreditation to teach in a Catholic school the opportunity to attend a broad range of lectures as auditors (without assessment). When approved by Catholic Education Melbourne, these lectures contribute to the areas specified in Part 2 of the policy which requires a total of 50 hours participation in professional development, according to the following:

  • category 'A': child, adolescent and adult faith development 
 10 hours 
  • category ‘B’: aims, objectives and rationale of the Catholic school 
 10 hours 
  • category ‘C’: revelation and the Catholic Church, including:
    Jesus Christ, scripture, the Church in its liturgy, life and tradition,
    sacraments, morality, justice and peace  
 15 hours 
  • a further 15 hours in any of the above categories
 15 hours 
An extensive list of modules is advertised to schools before commencement of each semester and a certificate of attendance is provided by the College upon completion.

The Catholic Dialogue School Today 

CTC is offering a 2-day seminar (four sessions) open to all teachers – especially those not teaching religious education.

These sessions will provide a strong introduction about the language and purpose of the Enhancing Catholic School Identity Project (ECSI).
  • Friday 16 August
  • Friday 30 August
It is expected that participants completing both days will gain 12 hours in Category B towards accreditation to teach in a Catholic School (CECV Policy 1.6).

A certificate of attendance is provided by the College upon completion.
