I am pleased to announce the inaugural Catholic Schools NSW Education Law Symposium to be held in Sydney on Monday 30 September 2019.
The theme of the 2019 symposium, the first of what will be an annual event, will be 'Catholic School Governance in the 21st Century'.
This professional development forum will be a premium opportunity to explore the governance related challenges - and responses - facing Catholic schools in NSW.
The Symposium is an opportunity to gather as a Catholic faith community to explore the complex governance and compliance issues that increasingly feature in the Australian school sector; participants will benefit from the insights of leading sectoral and nationally recognised experts.
Symposium topics include:
Governance and Catholic culture
Education law in the post Royal Commission and the Truth, Justice and Healing Council era
Catholic Education Governance frameworks for the 21st Century
Models of Governance - options for Australian Catholic school systems and authorities
Understanding Section 83c
Who should attend? Principals, others designated as responsible persons (Parish Priests, religious), School Board Chairs, Heads of governance and compliance and finance officers.
As a NESA approved provider of governance training and an Endorsed Provider of Professional Learning, CSNSW will register the forum with NESA to ensure that 'responsible persons' can use the forum hours to assist in meeting their mandatory obligations for governance related training.
Registration of the course in relation to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers will also provide those leaders in schools who are accredited teachers to also register these hours as NESA approved professional learning.
CSNSW will cover registration costs for this inaugural event.
