On Monday 6th November we launched the EREBB Leadership Certificate in Edmund Rice education to our English schools.
We were privileged to have with us, Anne O’Gara, President of the the Marino Institute for Higher Education in Dublin who has overseen the creation of the on-line qualification and who so eloquently explained the modules and assessment to Heads, governors and staff from most of the schools in our Network.
The product of some 3 years of collaboration between experts in all Provinces, the certificate covers areas such as the background story of Edmund’s life, spiritual leadership, social justice and how Edmund Rice education is developing in institutions globally.
Roisin Maguire, Director of the English Schools also announced that the English Office will fund all Heads and Principals and 5 of those staff who attendee this evening won funding to complete their certificates via a raffle.
Sign up now if you want to complete the certificate in this, the first cohort, there are just a few places left. The first cohort sign-up will close next Friday. The next opportunity to sign up will be next term, in January.
Good luck, enjoy the course and let us know how it inspires your leadership in Edmund Rice education.
O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
