West of England Steiner Teacher Training

We are sorry to say that our
Introductory Day on Saturday 25th April 2020
has been postponed due to the current situation.

Important changes to our courses

From September 2019, the structure of the WESTT courses is changing, to reflect evolving needs in the Steiner-Waldorf community and beyond.

Whilst the essence of our two-year teacher training will remain in place, we will be offering greater flexibility, including the option to take a standalone one-year Art of Education course.

Please follow the links below for more details:

Course Structure

Structured for people with busy lives

Our courses consists of ten weekends, which run from 7.00 pm on Friday to 1.00 pm on the Sunday, with one week at Easter and another in the Summer.

Independent work is an important element and, in addition to the weekend workshops, students complete a wide range of guided tasks. These include study of key texts, written assignments, art and craft work and child observation.
