Through this course, Sydney Rudolf Steiner College offers a unique approach to teacher training. The program involves two years of full time study, rich in philosophy, the arts and educational practice.
Semester 1: Personal Development - students take a series of foundation units in the humanities, sciences, arts and craft.
Semester 2: Professional Development - The Classroom/The Pedagogical Journey
This focuses on the theory and practice of Steiner Education. It balances Steiner educational philosophy with curriculum studies, practical experience and mentoring in classrooms.
The personal development of the individual becomes a path of professional practice, concerned with ethical responsibilities to society, the parent community, the school and the education of the child as well as the ability to communicate effectively out of a conscious understanding of their own life path and worldview.
