Relationship with Jesus Christ making the vital difference in our work.

Why are we here?

"Let me tell you

why you are here.

You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavours of this earth.

Interesting times

Over the last forty years the education system has been transformed.  Education is one of the hottest media topics, moving from a specialised market in the past catered for by The TES, to now when scarcely a day goes by without the major UK newspapers carrying an education story.  Now, more than ever, people are concerned about education.

 

The faith agenda

Whilst secular education is a controversial topic these days, the issue of faith schools is certain to raise the blood pressure in many circles.  Whereas some pundits want to see all faith schools closed down, many parents, including parents of no faith, find them curiously attractive and they remain stubbornly popular.  Why?

The

Association of Christian Teachers

is about

joined-up thinking

is a regular professional digest for busy education practitioners giving a synopsis of the media stories, professional developments from the various agencies like the DfE and Ofsted, resources, courses and notified vacancies.  Readers can “drill down” to more detail on matters of interest to their professional situations.

Forty years on …

The Association of Christian Teachers was born in 1971 when three separate organisations came together as one, to be the voice of Christians in education in the UK at national level.  The Association is evangelical in character and seeks to aid Christians in education make their faith relevant in their work.

What do members look like?

ACT members come from a wide range of churches and work in a similarly varied range of settings. Members may be university staff or Sure Start centre staff, and everything in between.  We have classroom support assistants in membership as well as head teachers, principals and administrators.

The Church

is a super-natural network, the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, and one which cares passionately about the education.  Despite popular assertions to the contrary it is the church which consistently through the centuries has established schools to encourage literacy and freedom of thought.

Professional climate

It’s not the easiest time to be an education professional.  After the significant hurdles of entering the profession, there is a relentless level of scrutiny from test and examination results to professional competence, continuing professional development and national standards.  And anyone can complain about you at any time.
