"Providing quality professional support to Catholic teachers, schools and colleges."
CATSC evolved from two associations in 1996 – CTF Catholic Teachers Federation, and ACSC Association of Catholic Schools and Colleges. CATSC was formed in April 1996 and officially launched by Cardinal Basil Hume at Westminster. The Cardinal referred to the rich tradition which was being carried on by the Association. He commended the Association to all teachers who through their commitment, expertise and experience 'may play a part in the Church's mission to the world so that children and parents will benefit from your vocation.. I am confident that the Association will most ably represent you, enable you to work, act and pray together, for the benefit of Catholic Education ...' Ecclesiastical liaison was continued through Bishop Edwin Regan, the Bishop of Wrexham, until 2008, when the role was accepted by Bishop Peter Doyle of Northampton. Bishop Doyle is himself the son of a former CTF President!
