The name ‘People of God - Called to Serve’ recalls the language of the Second Vatican Council used to describe the Church. The documents of the Council remind us that all the baptised are the Church, the People of God. We are Called to Serve the mission of the Church as the followers of Jesus who came to serve not to be served. We are also reminded of the words of Pope Francis to a group of young students:
“Be men and women with and for others: true champions at the service of others.”
The Framework People of God - Called to Serve is mapped against the Religious Education Curriculum Directory. The purpose of the Framework is to provide the basis from which schools and colleges can develop Religious Education Schemes of Work/Programmes of Study.
It is the first time that the Catholic community has supported the teaching of Religious Education through the medium of the internet. May this Framework and resources aid the work of quality Religious Education in our schools and colleges.

This nationally developed framework is deliberately mapped against the Religious Education Curriculum Directory for Catholic Schools and Colleges in England and Wales  of the Bishops’ Department of Catholic Education and Formation. The brief given was to provide a framework that would guide teachers of varied experience in a diversity of schools. The purpose of this Framework is to provide the basis on which to develop Schemes of Work/Programmes of Study.
