All SRE teachers must be authorised by a provider who is approved by the Minister for Education. Special religious education and special education in ethics providers are listed on the Department of Education website.
The Department of Education has Special Religious Education Procedures that stipulate the ongoing requirements of both providers and schools. All teachers should be familiar with the special religious education procedures.
The Department of Education requires that all SRE teachers are authorised. This includes:
- WWCC clearance by the provider
- Teacher training which includes
- Child protection
- Classroom management
- How to implement the approved provider’s authorised curriculum sensitively and in an age-appropriate manner
- Wearing a name badge that also has the name of the approved provider
The first step in SRE authorisation is to check your provider process.
