from NCEC. (2017). A Framework for Mission in Catholic Schools.
From the Latin
formare, meaning to shape, formation is an intentional process that is ongoing and reflective. It focusses on the development of individuals and communities from their lived experiences, in spiritual awareness, theological understanding, vocational motivation and capabilities for mission and service in the Church and the world.
Brisbane Catholic Education’s strategic approach strives to meet this need for a contemporary response that honours both the rich tradition and ecclesial responsibilities as well as the individual’s need in the contemporary context for authentic meaning making.
Formation in the Catholic Christian tradition is a dynamic process of growth, so we have identified
authentic staff formation as the critical factor in the continuing mission integrity of Catholic Education building on our work already in evidence across our BCE community.
Head - knowledge
Heart - experience
Hands - practice and application
We encourage you to be intentional in choosing from the range of focused formation opportunities individually and at a school level. For more information go to:
