A special professional learning event for those new to Christian schooling. This training seeks to empower staff in Christian schools to embrace their purpose and mission to bring the message of Jesus, through education, to a world in need.
We look forward to welcoming members and non-members, who may be new to Christian schooling, to this event.
This event is ideally suited to any staff (teaching and non-teaching) who may be new to Christian schooling.
This training program has been specifically designed to be run as a staff induction program. It is comprised of four individual sessions and the first two (Vision and Culture) will be explored at this event.
Vision: This module explores the vision, history and purpose of Christian schooling and gives some insight as to how this could play out in each school.
