Sydney Rudolf Steiner College

Sydney Rudolf Steiner College provides adult education and teacher training. We offer accredited part-time courses from Birth to Adulthood based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, Short Courses and NESA Professional Development Courses at Proficient Level for all teachers in NSW schools.

NESA Provider Code P12410.

Venue: 307 Sussex St, Sydney, 2000.

Distance Education for Early Childhood, Primary and High School teachers is delivered as year-long Part-Time courses. These courses give qualified teachers and Steiner teachers an understanding, or refreshment of understanding, of the basis of the Steiner education curriculum together with a rich program of inner development based on artistic practice and observation of life. These courses are very beneficial when seeking employment in Steiner organisations. Seminars mostly are held in school holidays and study may be undertaken while working. EC05 and DE02/3.

Early Childhood Courses

We have many courses for teachers, carers, parents, home-based educators in Early Childhood.

From Birth to Three, “The Art of Caring” course is at the forefront of Rudolf Steiner Early Childhood education and will be offered in Queensland (Samford Valley Steiner School) and possibly again in Melbourne (Melbourne Rudolf Steiner School) in 2019 over two weekends.

Our two Foundation courses (EC01 and EC05 Distance) occur each year and are Part-Time and give  two different entry points into our Certificate Early Childhood Course (EC02). This course includes a practicum in a Rudolf Steiner Pre-School or Kindergarten.

100 hours of Anthroposophical Study EC07 is required to complete the 400 hour qualification acknowledged by the International Association for Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood Education (IASWECE). This 100 hours is included in the EC05 course or studied in addition.
