National Institute for Christian Education Updates – Director’s Chat
The recent state conference season provided an excellent backdrop for CEN teachers to consider and participate in National Institute postgraduate and professional development study. Feedback from teachers of running the face-to-face ‘Kickstarter’ postgraduate units across a number of states was very well received. We will continue to pursue the ‘kickstarter’ support option in the future. Having direct access to some of our deepest thinkers in Christian education is a real highlight for many CEN teachers.
At a personal level, I was privileged to spend time at the New South Wales, Victorian, and Tasmanian conferences, and I appreciated the opportunity to reflect on the history, significance, and future importance of a strong and robust National Institute. The Institute exists to support you, the classroom teacher, in your pursuit of effective, intentional, and authentic Christian education.
I am excited by the prospect of visiting Western Australian, the Northern Territory and South Australia in the coming months.

On your behalf, the National Institute continues to pursue a wide range of new initiatives and projects and we look forward to sharing more detail with CEN teachers throughout 2017.
