Diploma in Catholic Education

The Diploma in Catholic Education (DCE) represents a partnership between St Patrick's College, Maynooth and the University of Notre Dame (USA).

The DCE is a one-year programme that is structured around three pillars: Community, Professionalism and Spirituality.

The goal of the programme is to engage teachers around the question of what it means to be a Catholic school and a Catholic school teacher.

The hope for the course is that these teachers will grow more fully in their own faith through a deeper understanding of their vocation as a teacher and to truly see their work as an expression of their faith.

This course should be of great benefit to any teacher interested in a leadership position in a Catholic school in future years or anyone generally interested in improving holistically as an educator.
