Waldorf Teacher Training
Our two year Teacher Training Program focuses on Waldorf pedagogy. It offers a comprehensive study of Rudolf Steiner's profound insights on human nature and the needs of the growing child. Methodology and curriculum studies in relationship to child development form the core of course work, along with the arts of eurythmy, music, singing, speech, drama, recorder playing, painting, drawing, form drawing, clay modeling, and spatial dynamics.
After successful completion of the Teacher Training program students may apply to Waldorf Schools for a teaching position. Please be aware that most Waldorf Schools also require their teachers to have a Bachelor’s degree from a certified College or University in addition to a certificate from an accredited Waldorf Teacher Training Program.
The two Waldorf Teacher Training years at the Alkion Center are taught on 27 Saturdays from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm over the course of the academic year.
Participation in two summer intensives is a requirement for graduation.
The tuition for the second and third year of Waldorf Teacher Training is $3,600 each (total of $7,200)
