|Correllian Study Groups|
The Correllian Tradition also has a number of Recognized Study
Like Personal Shrines, Study Groups are not formal bodies of the Tradition, but are independent groups run by Correllian members.
Study Groups exist to help students of Correllian Wicca join together to help one another in their studies.
Some Study Groups are sponsored by Temples or Shrines. Others are simply groups of interested people working together.
Study Groups Explained
There are two kinds of Study Groups:
Groups studying the initiatory lessons where the Keeper has completed the lessons and passed the tests and may teach those subjects to initiatory level, other subjects may also be studied.
Groups where the Keeper has not passed the tests for the subject but is using the group as a discussion group.
A Study Group may be hosted by a Temple, Shrine or a private individual. A Keeper for an initiatory study group will need to supply proof of test passes.
To be recognized as an official Correllian Study Group, the group must be registered with the Correllian Tradition.

Teaching Study Groups - Good records of all participation in your Study Group are required as a Teaching Study Group is more formal.

If you are only teaching the First Degree program and your students wish to go on to the Second Degree you will be required to supply proof of your students lessons and test pass dates, when they started the lessons and completed them, and when they took and passed their tests.
You will also have to supply a recommendation for your students when they apply for Clergy status or if they apply to another group for further Degrees.
Discussion Study Groups
Discussion Study Groups as less formal that Teaching Study Groups and do not require as much record keeping. Test passes will not be part of the study group’s requirements and recommendations for members are not required from the Keeper.
