Become a Steiner Teacher

SYDNEY RUDOLF STEINER COLLEGE offers annual part-time Foundation and Certificate courses in Early Childhood, Primary Teaching and High School Teaching with the flexibility to cope with Covid restrictions, now and in the future.

Our courses are well established and guided by a staff of highly regarded and experienced local and international tutors. We offer flexibility in our delivery, the opportunity to engage with the content and receive a thorough grounding in the foundations of Rudolf Steiner education. The student also has the opportunity to meet others who will support their journey and work in a class environment of like-minded people.

In addition, our programs support the transition from mainstream into Steiner education. Our rigorous courses are recognised both in Australia (SEA and SECA) and internationally (IASWECE).

We are able to offer a mix of Online learning with ‘in-person’ Seminars through the college and in collaboration with local school Teacher Training Hubs across Australia, to enhance the learning experience and foster meaningful connections with both the content and tutors.

We also welcome international offshore students to enrol in our highly regarded courses and discuss a tailored learning experience where in-person training is not possible.
