Formation Programs

Formation is not only essential to our identity as Catholic schools with a life giving link to the Edmund Rice charism but is also crucial to our own personal growth and development.

EREA is proud to support the development of current and potential school leaders by providing a range of opportunities for personal and professional growth, including national and regional networks of school leaders; annual conferences; support for post graduate study; research projects; immersion and formation experiences; sabbatical / renewal opportunities; and Senior Leaders Induction.

In addition to these, EREA facilitates participation in the following leadership programs:

A pathway for transformation
In striving to provide Catholic Education in the Edmund Rice Tradition, we seek to provide relevant and meaningful formative experiences that companions and nurtures the growth of those who shape and influence the educational experience throughout their time with EREA. As such, EREA Formation Programs are organised into three movements of Setting out, Deepening and Leading.
