Course Subjects

Philosophical Modules

Goethean Science: Students examine through exploration of the principal ideas of Goethean science and through careful observation of natural and cultural phenomena – how this science is central to the development of anthroposophical spiritual science and Rudolf Steiner education.

Inner Development for Teachers: This is an introduction to the Anthroposophical path of inner development. Students work with the rhythm of observation and reflection leading from percept to concept.

Steiner Education – Curriculum Studies (extension): This module builds on the skills students have developed in preparing main lessons in the first year course,  the Introduction to Steiner Education. Selecting another 3 main lessons, students will explore the curriculum and devise complete main lesson plans in peer supported workshops led by an experienced Steiner educator.

History of Human Consciousness: In this module we ask the questions:

  • What is the world and how do we describe it?
  • What is our relationship to the world and how have we been shaped by it?

in a cultural and historical context and in relation to Rudolf Steiner’s worldviewon evolution. This module also provides the foundation for teaching history in the Waldorf curriculum.

Course Subjects

Visual Arts Module

Clay Modelling: Practical experiences in observation and modelling; metamorphosis of form and creative expression through clay.

Form Drawing through the Steiner Curriculum: What must a teacher understand to teach this art practise? Explore the balance of the straight and curved line and the spaces in between. Form drawing skills are introduced in the Foundation year and deepened at the Certificate Training Seminar.
