Steiner Education High School Teaching – Foundation Course
Enrolments for 2025 will open in July. Term dates, tutors and content will be made available then. Please read below to get an idea of the general course overview. In response to a growing call from schools around Australia, Sydney Rudolf Steiner College has been working closely with High School leadership to develop a High School Foundation (HTF) course to ensure comprehensive Steiner/Waldorf training for high school teaching staff, and in particular, for new teachers that are transitioning to Steiner education. This one-year, part-time course aims to equip High School teachers with solid foundational knowledge of Steiner/Waldorf education, an understanding of child developmental phases from an anthroposophical perspective, and how these inform the high school curriculum, covering all the central topics required for teaching in the Steiner High School. It explores theoretical, practical, and creative modules, providing a rigorous and comprehensive experience of Rudolf Steiner Education with the adolescent at the centre of the curriculum. The program is led by a staff of highly experienced tutors to guide students through a series of modules that include essential topics such as child development and transitions, the self-development of the teacher, the Main Lesson and Integrated Curriculum, with attention given to the teaching methodology of maths, science and language.

In consideration of the pressures and time constraints placed on high school teachers, the course has been developed to ensure that students are able to cope with the course workload while maintaining a full-time teaching position. Participants can enrol in individual modules to complete the course progressively.

International Students are welcome! [maxbutton name="Enquiries for Robyn"]
