Steiner Primary Teacher Training

Steiner Primary Teacher Training

Teacher Training Course 20192020

This course focuses on the Steiner Primary curriculum. It will provide a rich experience in professional or personal development through a program of artistic practice and a thorough understanding of Rudolf Steiner’s educational philosophy.

Drawing, painting, modelling, Eurythmy, music, craft, drama and movement will be brought in a gentle but powerful way.

No experience is necessary, only a willingness to learn.

Experienced Waldorf teachers will assist you in developing your skills and understandings to become artists in teaching all subjects across the Primary curriculum.

Term one of the course will start
Friday 15 February 2019 and end Friday 5 April

The course will run over two years on eight Fridays (4:30 pm to 8:30 pm), and two Saturday mornings (9.00 am to 12.30pm) each term—except fourth term of each year when teachers’ end-of-year commitments are greater. In the fourth term of each year the course will run over four Fridays and one Saturday morning.

On completion of the course, trainees will receive a Certificate of Completion, which will be valuable to anyone seeking employment in Steiner schools. With over 1000 Waldorf schools in 60 countries there is great demand for Steiner-trained teachers.
