Catholic Teacher Initiative

 How effective this initiative will be remains to be seen, but at least something is being tried. In Scotland we have similar problems, there are many Catholic posts, particularly Primary Head Teacher posts that are re - advertised many times, and sometimes not filled, as there are simply not enough / no applicants.

 All teachers asked to consider Catholic School leadership

Catholic teachers working in non-Catholic schools are being invited to attend a course run by the Diocesan Education Service entitled “Towards Leadership of a Catholic Primary or Secondary School”. The course will help teachers discover whether they are being called to a senior role in Catholic education.
The course, which will take place on Saturday 13 October is aimed at all subject leaders, middle managers and assistant head teachers from non-Catholic schools. It is intended to introduce teachers to the special expectations and requirements of teaching within a faith setting.
