Accreditation to teach in a Catholic school is a professional requirement of all teachers in Catholic schools in Queensland. Once employed, teachers in Catholic schools are required to complete 25 hours of approved Professional Development activities of a religious nature over 5-year periods of employment to meet this requirement.


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. Unless first employed in a Catholic school before 27 April 1996, teachers initially gain Accreditation to Teach Religion in a Catholic School by completing four semester units of approved courses at tertiary level drawn from one or more of the following areas: Religion studies; Christian leadership; theology; scripture; Religious Education; liturgy; spirituality or similar. Until they have done this, teachers hold Interim Accreditation to Teach Religion in a Catholic School. Diocese of Toowoomba Catholic Schools (TCS) suggests a number of study pathways and scholarships to support teachers to gain this accreditation. TCS 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 (above). The additional 25 hours would usually have a specific Religion curriculum content/pedagogy dimension.
