Shared Vision is a programme of formation for teachers and support staff in the Jesuit schools of the British Province. It aims to communicate the Jesuit tradition of education and to encourage awareness and understanding of Jesuit identity and misson.
Shared Vision Induction (SVi) consists of five 75-minute sessions and is delivered in the schools to new teaching and support staff by trained presenters. Schools generally deliver the first four sessions at the start of the school year and session five towards the end of the school year when new staff have some experience of living and working in a Jesuit school.
The five sessions of SVi are:
1. Catholic Education and Jesuit Schools
2. Meet Ignatius
3. Jesuit Mission in Schools
Our School - A Jesuit School
The Spirit of Jesuit Education
Resources for SVi are available online (see below) and in hard copy from the Jesuit Institute.
The Shared Vision Induction Handbook contains all the scripts for the session presentations together with guidance on running an SVi course.
