Adult Faith

Adult Faith Online is a series of short, online courses which focus on aspects of our faith and require reading, listening and reflection.

Like a book club, you can discuss ideas in an online community or create your own adult faith study group. Adult Faith Online can also be used for staff accreditation of both teaching and non-teaching personnel in Catholic schools.

Many Catholic Education Offices (CEOs) and Catholic Schools Offices (CSOs) across various Dioceses in Australia have implemented an Accreditation Framework for Catholic schools whereby all staff, including teachers, non-teaching staff, coordinators and those in school and system leadership, are required to undertake ongoing formation.

The Adult Faith Online courses offered by BBI – The Australian Institute of Theological Education (BBI-TAITE) provide schools with a ready-made pathway to offer teaching and non-teaching staff ongoing formation in Religious Education and Catholic Identity.
