Since this new Bible curriculum employs a significant paradigm shift in both teaching and learning, and embeds latest pedagogy in brain-based learning, as well as a move to teaching units rather than a traditional textbook, training in this curriculum is paramount.
Teachers who plan to use this new curriculum in the new school year will need to attend training in their Union. Administrators are also welcome to attend this training and will need to register their interest with their Union Education Department.

Please see your Union about the cost for training.
