Christian Education National

The National Institute for Christian Education is the postgraduate teacher training arm of Christian Education National.

Most Christian schools in Australia belong to a wider association of Christian schools. A community of school communities unified around the common goal of authentic, Bible-based, Christ-centred education. This is Christian Education National (CEN).

A community of around 22,000 students and their parents doing together what they can’t, and maybe shouldn’t, do alone. A community committed to demonstrating a vibrant biblical faith which permeates every aspect of learning, community life, policy, and practice in its associations and schools.

Christian Education National members include remote rural schools, large metropolitan schools, multicampus schools, trade training centres and incorporated school systems. CEN was established in 1966 and has constantly expanded and welcomed new members and now consists of schools and associations from every state and territory.

CEN is a not for profit public company that is structured around a National Board and State Councils with a National Office providing administrative and managerial support.
