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. A key feature of this arrangement is the renewal and restructure of ACD courses to provide a strong focus on integration of theory and ministry practice, ongoing curriculum development that meets the needs of contemporary ministry practice and creative options for postgraduate research. ACD's ecumenical tradition continues with adjunct lecturers and faculty from a range of denominations, including Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Churches of Christ, Lutheran, Salvation Army and Uniting Church.
For over 30 years ACD has been affiliated with Flinders University, working closely with the University in theological education and research. The collaboration agreement between ACD and Flinders University was renewed in December 2013
