Departmental Requirements

The Bishop's Conference of NSW requires a mandatory training course, named Level I Catechist Training, that includes foundational teacher and theological training. This training takes place one day a week for 6 weeks. Included in this training are two modules designed to meet the requirements of the Department of Education. These modules are:

  • Child Protection - Identifying indicators of abuse and reporting & understanding reportable conduct and appropriate behaviour with children
  • Classroom Management - Limit-setting, classroom rules, teaching processes and tools to better equip SRE teachers in the classroom

SRE Teachers must refresh in these formal courses at least every 3 years and commit to annual updates (delivered through resource materials and meetings). Formal courses can be attended in-person or via our online training. In-person courses are offered in Term 1 of each year in each region OR local training can be arranged for individual parishes.

Please call Cindy Oliver on 4640 8550 to enroll.
