One of the most strategic ways CEN can invest in the future of Christian Education is to build human capital. Our pursuit of excellence in Christian Education requires governance volunteers, school leaders and educators all serving with head, heart and hand. To grow this capability, CEN Victoria is delighted to offer three development grants per year of up to $5000 in value to supplement schools’ investment in the development of our people. A grant is offered annually in each of the following categories:
The Governance Development Grant is designed to equip serving governance volunteers with the opportunity to pursue further training or capacity building to fulfill their role or share their expertise within the wider Christian Education movement.
The Leadership Development Grant is designed to support a senior leader, or emerging senior leader in Christian Education to pursue a professional growth opportunity. Additionally, there is an opportunity to support leaders to serve others in need within the wider Christian Education movement.
The Education Development Grant is designed to enhance the effectiveness of a practising educator. Additionally, there is an opportunity to support educators to serve others in need within the wider Christian Education movement such as funding a teacher to deliver professional development for a Christian School in a needy context.
