Church Colleges Certificate in Church School Studies
The Church Colleges Certificate is a nationally recognised Certificate and is awarded by the Council of Anglican Church College Principals and the National Society. It consists of three modules: Religious Education, Collective Worship and Church School Ethos. To be awarded the Certificate students must complete all three modules. Bishop Grosseteste runs this certificate, working closely with local diocesan education teams and with strong endorsement by local bishops
The overall aim of the course is to provide opportunities for practical and theological reflection on the distinctiveness of Church schools. More specifically, it aims to:
• Provide in-service training for teachers;
• Provide a working knowledge of the key beliefs and practices of Christianity and the other major religions in the UK;
• Develop understanding of the distinctive nature of religious education, worship and ethos in Church schools;
• Explore the practical and ethical issues arising from state-funding of 'faith' schools;
• Provide opportunities for governors, clergy and other church members to develop understanding and skills in order to better service their local Church schools;
• Promote study skills for personal and theological reflection;
• Offer a forum for action research and reflective practice.
