Registration and Accreditation
As a Higher Education Provider (HEP), ACD is registered by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). All ACD higher education courses are accredited by TEQSA, from Diploma through to Doctor of Ministry. Details of ACD's registration and course accreditation in this sector can be found on the TEQSA National Register.
ACD is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in the VET sector, registered by the Australian Skills Quality Authority. ACD teaches accredited courses at Certificate and Diploma level in Christian Life and Ministry. Details of ACD's registration and our scope of accredited courses in this sector can be found on the Training.gov.au National Register.
The ACD now works closely with the Uniting College for Leadership and Theology as its member: the ACD provides accredited courses in its own right as a government approved Higher Education Provider and Registered Training Organisation, and Uniting College provides the teaching. Adjunct lecturers include faculty from the Catholic Theological College who continue some teaching in ACD courses. A key feature of this arrangement is the recent renewal and restructure of ACD undergraduate courses to provide a strong focus on integration of theory and ministry practice, and ongoing curriculum development that meets the needs of contemporary ministry practice.
Until 2011 the ACD was also affiliated with Flinders University. A new consortium, the Adelaide Theological Centre Incorporated (ATC), has taken up this role as the Flinders University Department of Theology. The ATC brings together the Catholic Theological College and the Uniting College for Leadership and theology for joint teaching and research in Theology through Flinders University.While the ATC is separate from the ACD, we still work closely together in theological and ministry education.
