The objective of the two-year program is to prepare students for their task as teachers within the Waldorf School Movement.
The Foundation Year provides the spiritual, cognitive basis for future educators: a deep, comprehensive understanding of the human being and the world, as it is made possible through Rudolf Steiner's spiritual science. The Education Year builds on these insights and guides students in the application of the child-centered Waldorf curriculum in such a way that they can develop, within themselves, the capacity and the skill to find teaching methods out of their own inner resources.
