Changes at the National Institute for Christian Education

There have been some changes to staffing at The National Institute. The following email went out to member schools last month:

Following direction from the National Board, we have been working towards financial cutbacks, including staffing. As a part of this process, the Academic Dean role for The National Institute for Christian Education has been made redundant. Dr Beth Beech will be ceasing that role, effective as of the 30 September 2019.

Beth has been a huge asset to the National Institute. Bringing clarity to enrolment processes, updating our learning management system, engaging tirelessly with our students, bringing academic robustness to the organisation, overseeing the course transitions (including a full rewrite of courses) to Alphacrucis, is just naming a few of the marvellous things that Beth has achieved. We will miss her.

Further to this, the existing roles have been re-structured. We are pleased to announce that starting in 2020 the board has appointed Dr Chris Prior to the role of Principal for four days per week. Chris will also continue to serve Victorian schools in a reduced capacity from next year (Victorian schools stay tuned). Chris holds great insight, capacity and intellect to serve us well in this role. Dr Rod Thompson will continue to serve the National Institute community as our Emeritus Principal, assisting in strategic planning and direction. Rod will also continue to work in CEN as our Biblical Foundations Coordinator.
