SCEA Induction and New to Christian Education Day for new staff in 2024

In readiness for 2024, our plan is to welcome our incoming staff and those who have joined during the 2023 year in a way that informs them about life within SCEA. 

The staff members (estimated to be more than 100 individuals from across our seven schools and SCEA Office) will begin their day (Friday, 19 January 2023) at Swan Christian College (SCC) before breaking into Support staff and Teaching staff groups after lunch. The Support staff will visit the SCEA Head Office and meet the staff there, while the Teaching staff will undertake a professional learning session on the Gospel-Inspired Teaching and Learning Framework at SCC before visiting the SCEA Head Office later in the day. 

The day will cover SCEA’s history, Strategic Plan, our mission, vision, values, and important policies. It will allow networking and getting to know staff from other schools and the SCEA Head Office team.

The run sheet for 19 January can be found here:

All new staff who have joined SCEA schools and the Head Office since 1 February 2023 will receive an email invitation with details of the ‘SCEA Induction and New to Christian Education Day’ by Tuesday 12 December 2023.
