Accreditation through CIWA is essential to teach or lead at a Catholic school in WA. The good news is, through our interactive and engaging education opportunities, we’ve made the process as simple as possible. We encourage you to explore the possibilities below and consider which pathway is right for you. And, if you need a hand, we’re just a phone call away!
If you’re studying education now, or are thinking about starting, integrating our Catholic Education units with your university studies at ECU, Curtin, or Murdoch is the simplest way towards accreditation.
CIWA Online Courses for Accreditation

Spiritual and Faith Formation
The Catholic Institute offers spiritual and faith formation programs for experienced educators and leaders already accredited. The Borromeo and Galilee programs offer a unique experience of spiritual and faith formation to each person.
"As a pre-service teacher, the Catholic Education units at ECU helped me develop a deeper understanding of my own Catholic faith."
"And, as a future role model, how my decisions will influence the students I teach. I want to be a true inspiration as a teacher, and now thanks to my unit studies, I have learned teaching strategies that will be invaluable in a Catholic school.”
