The module aims to expose the philosophies that underline current education practices and to lay foundations for a Christian philosophy of education.

The course aims to look closely at the influence of ones fundamental beliefs about God upon ones practice of education

The course aims to identify Biblical Principles of teaching and learning and to also examine the concepts of relational teaching and learning.


The module aims to equip teachers in their understanding and practice of some of the fundamental areas involved in effective Christian teaching. However, the course  equally acknowledges the enrolment of non-teaching staff in the programme. The practice of Christian Education in a school is not limited to what happens in the classroom. With this in mind, non-teaching staff enrolled for the course are encouraged to consider their offices  or stations as their area of influence in the same way that a teacher considers the classroom or sports field as their area of influence.
