Teacher Education SYDNEY RUDOLF STEINER COLLEGE is very pleased to announce a new restructured pathway to training as an Early Childhood or Primary/High School teacher with the flexibility to cope with Covid restrictions, now and in the future. We will be offering a mix of weekly webinars and ‘in-person’ seminars that will enhance your experience and foster meaningful connections with both the content and tutors.

These courses are for those interested in Steiner education as well as qualified teachers and Steiner teachers, and provides 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 are held in school holidays and study may be undertaken while working.

We are offering a year long Foundation Primary teaching course (PTF) which is the pathway to the year long Certificate course (PTC).

Modules throughout the course can be attended separately as stand-alone. However in order to qualify to work as a teacher in a Steiner school, students will be required to complete both the PTF and PTC courses.
