    CCRS
    Mar 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

    Day Five – Morality – online

    The CCRS is normally acquired over two years, with a maximum of five years’ study.  The diocese offers four modules a year on a two-year cycle.  Each year will consist of three core modules and a specialist module.  You may choose to do four modules per year to complete the course over two years or you may space it out over a longer period.  Once you begin your first module you must complete the course within five years.  This academic year will consist of 8 days in total with four days in school time (9.30 am to 3.30 pm) and four days on a Saturday (10 am to 12.30 pm).

    To gain accreditation you must attend each module and successfully complete an assignment.

    This year we will consider:  The Church, The Sacraments, Morality and the specialist module will be Faith & Science.  You are welcome to attend the sessions without seeking accreditation through the submission of essays.

    Governor Induction Training @ virtual meeting via Microsoft Teams

    For Newly Appointed Governors

    This training is the minimum requirement for all newly appointed Foundation Governors to enable them to undertake their roles and responsibilities of governing a Catholic school effectively and appropriately.  It will explore what it means to be a Governor of a Catholic school and its distinctive nature, and the expectations of being the Bishop’s representative on a governing body.

    Non Foundation Governors are also encouraged to attend to support them in their role as a member of a Catholic school governing body.

    N.B.  The costs of this training will be charged to the school.
