The Anglican Education Commission (Anglican EdComm) exists to advance the Anglican Diocese of Sydney's commitment to promoting biblically-shaped education. It was re-established as a separate entity by the Synod in 2007. Its mandate is to contribute to the transformation of education through pre-schools, Anglican schools, colleges, parishes and other Anglican organisations.
Anglican EdComm promotes teaching as a worthy and strategic vocation. It seeks to support Christian Teachers at every stage of their career. Whether a person is considering teaching, an established teacher or a school leader, Anglican EdComm exists to support teachers and help them enrich the lives of students both academically and spiritually.
Through mentoring, networking, conducting BOSTES accredited professional learning and consultancy within schools, it seeks to help teachers and school leaders to implement a biblically-shaped approach to education. It plays an important role in advocacy and representing an Anglican perspective to governments, the education profession and the wider community.
It has an interest in enhancing Anglican Religious Education and in promoting scholarly research on biblically-shaped education.
