See manuals below.
Launch the Teacher Accreditation Platform (TAP)
Leaders and teachers in Catholic schools play an essential part in seeking to ensure that students experience a quality education, and are invited to encounter God and develop their knowledge and appreciation of the Catholic faith and tradition.
The accreditation process aims to support leaders and teachers entering and continuing service in Catholic education to develop the knowledge and skills that will support authentic witness in and across all Victorian Catholic schools.
Leaders and teachers entering Catholic education without being accredited to teach in a Catholic school are granted a five-year period from the commencement of employment to secure their accreditation.
There are two levels of accreditation in recognition of the different roles that leaders and teachers undertake:
- Accreditation to Teach in a Catholic School (gain and maintain)
- Accreditation to Teach Religious Education or Lead in a Catholic School (gain and maintain).
All teachers are required to gain and maintain Accreditation to Teach in a Catholic School.
All teachers of Religious Education and leaders are required to gain and maintain Accreditation to Teach Religious Education or Lead in a Catholic School. (Note: Meeting the study and currency requirements of Accreditation to Teach Religious Education or Lead in a Catholic School also satisfies the requirements of Accreditation to Teach in a Catholic School.)
The Policy and Implementation Guidelines are also available to download.
