The National Institute for Christian Education is the teacher training arm of its owner, Christian Education National. The Institute comes under the governance of the CEN National Board. However, teachers participate in professional development courses and enrol into postgraduate courses from a variety of contexts. For the degree programs, and for the purpose of government accreditation, the Institute has a third party arrangement with Morling College Ltd. The postgraduate academic processes of the Institute are subject to the Academic Board of Morling College of which the Institute principal is a member.
Although the National Institute is subject to, and participates in, numerous Morling committees and boards, it has its own advisory committee (in conjunction with faculty), that review postgraduate courses and procedures and advise on professional development programs.
