Teacher Training FAQ
What makes this training different?
The aim of this program is to produce exceptional teachers. We achieve this with a rigorous results-orientated approach where we incorporate systematic and intelligent tools that work in making a real difference in the classroom, and by getting real with and practicing what it takes to create authentic and powerful connections with other people, such that both students and teacher are left in the experience of fulfilment and inspiration.
What are the times for the days?
September 21, 22 opening weekend:
Saturday 8am - 7pm. Sunday 8am - 5pm.
Saturdays thereafter: 8am - 8pm.
There will a break for lunch and a short morning and afternoon breaks.
We will run practice teaching sessions every Wednesday night from 6pm - 9pm. In order to meet the 200 hours of training, you will need to attend a minimum of 8 practice teaching evenings. You may attend every session if you want to, and we invite you to continue attending beyond the completion of your 200-hr training to keep developing your teaching and yourself.
I'm busy and I can't make all of the dates you've presented. How would this work for me?
The curriculum of the training will be delivered during the Spring and Fall of each year, which means every year you have two opportunities to complete curriculum that you have not yet completed. There are no requirements about how quickly you need to complete the curriculum.
What's included in the cost of tuition?
Once you have paid your deposit, you may practice at the studio free of charge for the duration of the teacher training.
