Accreditation to teach Religion in a Catholic school is a professional requirement of teachers of Religion in Catholic schools in Queensland. This applies to all primary class teachers and to secondary teachers required to teach a Religion subject. Teachers initially gain accreditation to teach Religion in a Catholic school by completing four units of approved tertiary study. Until they have done this, teachers hold Interim Accreditation to Teach Religion in a Catholic school. Some graduate teachers who have completed their study through ACU may already have completed four semester units of study in the areas of Religion studies; Christian leadership; theology; scripture; Religious Education; liturgy; spirituality or similar. This would then meet the initial requirements for accreditation to teach Religion in a Catholic school. Diocese of Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office (TCSO) suggests a number of study pathways and scholarships to support teachers to gain this accreditation. TCSO encourages teachers seeking to meet the four units of study requirement to do so by initially engaging in the Religious Education Accreditation Program (REAP) Inservice. They would then follow this with the study of three semester units from the Australian Catholic University (ACU) or from Broken Bay Institute – The Australian Institute of Theological Education (BBI-TAITE). Teachers then renew their accreditation to teach Religion in a Catholic school by completing 50 hours of approved Professional Development activities in designated five-year periods. This 50 hours may include 25 hours of activities suitable for maintaining accreditation to teach in a Catholic school. The additional 25 hours would usually have a specific Religion curriculum content / pedagogy dimension
