The National Catholic Education Commission has published A Framework for Formation for Mission in Catholic Education as a resource for educational leaders with responsibility for faith staff formation. This responsibility applies to the principals, leadership teams and school governance bodies of Catholic schools and those with director, mission leadership, governance and formation roles in diocesan, religious institute and ministerial public juridic person entities and systems.
This framework is offered as a resource for the evaluation of current practice and strategic enhancement of formation for mission of leaders and staff in Australian Catholic schools and systems.
There is a formative dimension to every aspect of Catholic schooling. Therefore, this document provides not only a framework for formation, but an orientation for the whole life of a Catholic educational community. All members of the community can find themselves in this framework, as it presents understandings that are fundamental to the formation of all individuals and communities, leaders, staff, parents and students.
