National Programmes for Catholic Teaching

Tabor programme                                                                                                                                        The National School of Formation Tabor programme, for middle and senior leaders is now recruiting for the next cohort for 2022-2023(commencing in November).

The course establishes a community of transformational, authentic and enabling school leaders at national level.  The programme is rooted in the mission of the Church in education, to enable middles and senior leaders to grow their gift for transformation of society.  Service for the common good, following the example of Christ - inspired by transfiguration - is a core aspect of this programme.  The pastoral cycle themes are used to enable delegates to apply theory into their daily practice, becoming authentic and transformational subject, departmental and senior leaders.  For further information contact - Kate Bailey, Co-Director of Schools on email or go the website - programme.

A dynamic and challenging approach to teaching and learning in a Catholic School has been developed. This initiative calls for the contextualising of all learning within the beliefs and values of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition, aspiring to reach the highest levels of learning. It explores the big questions of purpose and meaning that arise throughout the Liturgical year. It provides building blocks to engage students . For further information contact - Kate Bailey, Director of Schools on email or go to the website - the kingdom.
