NCRS is one of the three organisations, along with the Tertiary Education provider (PTE) and the Nathaniel Centre, that forms the Catholic Institute of Aotearoa New Zealand.
NCRS is responsible for the production of religious education and catechetical programmes at early childhood, primary and secondary levels for schools and parishes.
We also produce adult education courses such as Walk by Faith and teacher formation programmes including "Having Life to the Full" (a Catholic course in Human Sexuality).
