At the heart of A steiner community

Being located near Stroud, with its thriving Steiner community, WESTT is able to draw on a deep well of experience.  As well as our full-time course tutors, we have regular part-time contributors who teach music, speech, movement/games and eurythmy.

leading specialists

We also invite the leading lights in their field to teach modules on  early-years, additional learning needs, outdoor classroom, the senses, teacher resilience, clay modelling and more.

drawing on experience

The course itself is held in one of the UK’s most established Steiner schools,  Wynstones, and we are within driving distance of a number of others, including the academies in Hereford, Exeter, Bristol and Frome.   This allows us to call on  a number of experienced teachers, who are able to share valuable insights into their teaching practice.
