Letter from National Director of Catechetics re: CPD Resources

12th June 2024 | News, What's New

Dear Colleagues,

I wish to acknowledge and thank you for all the work you are doing in teaching Religious Education in Catholic Schools. Following on from meetings with key stakeholders in Catholic Primary Schools on how we can better support you in your work of teaching Religious Education and with regards to your Continuing Professional Development a Memo with Recommendations for Action was circulated to the Catholic Patrons and Boards of Management for their attention.


A Committee has been established to take on board these recommendations and to implement solutions for CPD. In the interim period and in my capacity as National Director for Catechetics I wish to share with you a number of free online and in person resources that you can immediately start to use for your own CPD and to deepen your knowledge of faith.


The intention is to provide you with a suite of CPD resources for those who wish to avail of them. Those who complete the Primary Learning Track in the Franciscan at Home online platform receive a certificate of completion from the National Catechetical Office and Franciscan University. The step-by-step onboarding details for Franciscan at Home are included below.


I hope you find these resources of benefit for your work. Once additional CPD opportunities and in-person events are organised I will update you on these.


With every blessing and good wishes for your Continuing Professional Development,


Dr Alexander O’Hara

National Director for Catechetics
