Recruitment and Training
All new volunteers wishing to teach SRE to children in state Government schools must undertake a process of verification and training. There is usually consultation with the Parish Priest and the volunteer must then apply for a Working With Children Check clearance. Once the documentation is received the volunteer is verified by the diocese and the volunteer is mentored by the current parish coordinator.  The SRE teacher is then expected to attend training sessions equivalent to Level One Basic SRE training. This can be the Catholic Conference of Religious Educators (CRESS) on- line training or delivered by Diocesan personnel.Curriculum
At present the authorised curriculum is “Christ Our Light and Life” a program developed by the Archdiocese of Sydney specifically for use in NSW State Schools. An outline can be found on the following website.http://www.ccdsydney.catholic.edu.au/currRes.html
