FULL TIME ON CAMPUS: The Advanced Diploma of Rudolf Steiner Education, (Course code 10825NAT, CRICOS code 086202A) is a two year full-time accredited qualification. It provides an essential pre-requisite pathway to a university Bachelor of Education at the Australian Catholic University and Charles Darwin University, which qualifies graduates to teach in all Steiner schools but also in mainstream Australian schools. Graduates with this qualification are highly preferred in Steiner schools and employment is almost guaranteed due to the critical shortage of Steiner trained teachers available to meet the growing needs of expanding Steiner schools In Australia. As Steiner Education Australia has been successful in seeking recognition from ACARA for the Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework (ASCF), it is essential that graduate teachers understand how to deliver this extensive curriculum. The Advanced Diploma of Rudolf Steiner Education has embedded the ASCF in its course structure and has full backing and support from Steiner Education Australia.
Nationally, there is a great demand for Steiner trained teachers. Graduates find excellent employment in early childhood settings, primary and secondary schools and in roles working with children with special needs.
We are an approved VET Student Loans provider for eligible local students studying the Advanced Diploma of Rudolf Steiner Education, who in addition, may be eligible for Austudy. VET Student Loans assist eligible, full fee-paying students to pay for all or part of the course fees.
