Formation Opportunities

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.

Leadership Programs

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
EREA formative opportunities offer a pathway for transformation comprised of three movements: setting out, deepening and leading. We invite all within our EREA communities, inclusive of Board members and other volunteers, to participate in relevant and meaningful experiences that companion and nurture personal growth, as well as support and build the capacity of all to contribute to Catholic education in the Edmund Rice Tradition.
