Theological Educators

The Ministry Division identifies ordinands with aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching theology as part of their future ministry as Potential Theological Educators.

Recognition as such is required for approval and funding of Cambridge Research Degrees and for approval and funding of a third year in college for purposes of study (e.g., for people over 32 wishing to do the Tripos).

Achieving this designation requires demonstrated ability and interest in teaching theology in a variety of contexts: not only at university or theological college level, but also on Diocesan courses for lay ministry, and effective catechesis at parochial and deanery level in the service of the Church. 

To explore the possible training pathways for Potential Theological Educators further, you are encouraged to contact Revd Dr Naomi Wormell, the Director of Studies, on naw1002@cam.ac.uk
