ATCRE National RE Conference

& booking details below. 

"I'm delighted to announce that ATCRE have been formally accepted into the Religious Education Council (REC).


To the REC you need to demonstrate that you meet their membership criteria. We fully met their criteria, in particular, being a national organisation that is committed to excellence in RE.


Membership of the REC is significant for ATCRE because it means we have gained recognition in the wider RE world and can further contribute to the debate about RE at the national level.


ATCRE looks forward to working with the REC and its members."
