Enrolments for 2019 now open

Course Fee: $3000.00


Course Overview

Are you a qualified teacher who wishes to gain qualifications to teach in a Steiner school? Do you wish to deepen your knowledge of Anthroposophy?

The Foundations and Certificate courses in Rudolf Steiner Education involve both philosophical and artistic modules that give you a comprehensive experience of the impulses behind Anthroposophy and of the ideas and intentions behind Rudolf Steiner Education.

These two courses are delivered as separate part time courses over one year each. When both are completed a Certificate of Rudolf Steiner Education is awarded. (Statements of Attainment are awarded for individual modules on completion).

This course is recognised by Steiner schools in Australia for those seeking employment as teachers in Steiner schools. For all Australian schools, teachers need the requisite government qualifications.
