Are you a humanist interested in education? Do you believe that children should receive a broad education about both religious and non-religious beliefs and values? Are you willing to work cooperatively and patiently with members of religious organisations to make religious education and school assemblies more inclusive? Then you could be a humanist SACRE or SAC representative.
Humanists UK is looking for humanists who are interested in joining their local Standing Advisory Committee for Religious Education (SACRE) in England or Standing Advisory Council for Religion, Values and Ethics (SAC) in Wales. These local committees, made up of teachers, councillors, and volunteer representatives of religious groups, determine and manage Religious Education (RE) / Religion, Values and Ethics (RVE) and collective worship in most local state schools.
You can find more about being a rep and how to get involved on our Volunteer as a SACRE/SAC rep page here.
