The Graduate Certificate in Teaching Religious Education is principally, although not
exclusively, designed to enable teachers to gain accreditation to teach and to teach Religious
Education and lead in a Catholic school:

The Graduate Certificate allows those who have an undergraduate, or higher, qualification in
another discipline to pursue theological, educational and leadership units that will enhance
their ability to effectively communicate the Catholic faith and lead in a Catholic school.

It introduces students to contemporary scholarship in scripture, theology, leadership and
religious education, so as to assist them in the planning, implementation and evaluation of
programs of religious education in addition to leading in Catholic Schools.
