Career Pathways - Graduate Certificate in Religious Education

Seeking employment in a Catholic School?

Have you graduated with a Bachelor of Teaching or Education and currently seeking employment in a Catholic school? The Graduate Certificate in Religious Education along with a teaching degree, satisfies the qualifications required for becoming a primary school teacher in a Catholic school and a Religious Education teacher in a secondary school, in most Dioceses across Australia. The Graduate Certificate in Religious Education may increase your employability.

If you are still enrolled in a Bachelor of Teaching or Education and have completed 75% of your bachelor degree with a credit average, there is a concurrent study program available, where you can complete the Graduate Certificate in Religious Education simultaneously. This will be available in Trimester 2, 2017.

For teachers and leaders – boost your career

The Master of Leadership & Theology and Master of Religious Education fulfils the criteria for accreditation into Senior Leadership in the Catholic education system, which includes : Principals, Assistant Principals, RE and Mission Leaders, Director of Schools, Assistant Director of Schools, Consultants, and Leaders of CSO Educational Teams. These degrees may provide a competitive advantage for advancement within the Catholic or Christian School systems.

The Graduate Certificate in Religious Education is fully credited into the Master's courses. 

Recognition of previous qualifications

All of BBI's new courses are nested, meaning that they build on one another, ensuring that students receive credit for courses previously accomplished and reducing the total number of units which must be completed to attain the qualification. Students who have completed relevant study elsewhere may also be eligible for recognition of this prior learning, which would reduce the overall length of their course with BBI.
