The David Hope RE Centre in York is one of the major religious education resource centres in the UK. It provides resources and a consultancy service for teachers and headteachers in both church and community schools and serves church ministers, youth workers and others involved in religious education both within their own faith community and in the wider community.
The Centre is an inset provider for individual schools, local education authorities and dioceses, and arranges courses for clergy, teachers, governors and others working in religious education. It provides short term in-service training for schools on issues such as RE, Collective Worship, Church School Ethos and Moral and Spiritual Development. Training programmes are negotiated individually with the Head of Centre.
