Religious Education (2R7W)

In religious education (RE), pupils enter into a rich discourse about the religious and non-religious traditions that have shaped Great Britain and the world. RE in primary and secondary schools enables pupils to take their place within a diverse multi-religious and multi-secular society. At its best, it is intellectually challenging and personally enriching. It affords pupils both the opportunity to see the religion and non-religion in the world, and the opportunity to make sense of their own place in that world. Ofsted Curriculum Review Series: RE (2021)

The RE training curriculum is designed to support you to deliver high quality teaching in any school context.

It provides you with the best available evidence as well as practical support as you begin to develop your skills as an RE specialist. 

The curriculum is designed to extend your interest, knowledge and confidence in RE as a subject within the curriculum and to extend your development of an analytical and critical attitude towards the teaching and learning of RE.

In order to become an effective classroom teacher, trainees must be able to critically and realistically evaluate their own work, listen to the advice of others, and ensure progress through continuous reflection. The development of these skills runs through the entire course.
