  • CCPAS - The Churches' Child Protection Advisory Service is a Christian organization which provides advice to churches and schools about issues of child protection. This is a subject of vital interest to all who are working in schools, and one where it is particularly important to make sure that you are working in accordance with current guidelines and legislation. Please check the CCPAS website here and contact them if you have any concerns. Please also see the article written by CCPAS on our Downloads Page.
  • SCRIPTURE UNION - Scripture Union (SU) is a well-established organization that works with young people in schools, churches and youth groups both in the UK and internationally. SU provides excellent resources for RE teaching, as well as aids for personal and group Bible reading. They also organize a wide range of camps and holidays: these have been used over the years to bring many young people to faith in Christ and also to help them grow in Christian maturity. Please use this link to go to the SU website and make use of their materials, all of which are highly recommended and used by many TISCA members.
  • CHRISTIAN RESOURCES FOR SCHOOLS - This website contains a wealth of information and interesting resources. It will be of particular interest and relevance for those who are taking assemblies or leading Christian Union groups in senior schools.
  • Crossref-it - Crossref-it is a website provided by the Stapleford Centre. It offers marvellous resources for all students of English Literature, and for anyone who is interested in the way the Bible has been used by writers down the years.
