Confident Student to Confident RE Teacher: A Perspective from Scotland
The document, Educating Today and Tomorrow: A Renewing Passion (Congregation for Catholic Education, 2014) highlights the importance of supporting ‘Catholic Teachers’ ‘lifelong learning’. It stresses that unless Catholic teachers are subjected to ‘rigour and depth’ in their learning then their teaching would be considered as ‘not credible, unreliable and, therefore, unnecessary’.
