Church seeks to focus its efforts in promoting Catholic education by
recruiting a professional educationalist who can provide strategic direction for its work throughout the country."

A variety of challenges will face the appointee here in Scotland . Among them; the development of the religious and moral education curriculum in all of our schools, development and implementation of a communications strategy designed to involve home, school and parish, engagement of catholic teachers in faith-based continuous professional development and the task of assisting diocesan advisers and others at local level with the implementation of these developments."
