Covid-19 Update –
Our next Art of Education course will begin in September 2021.

We will be accepting applications from February 2021, but you are welcome to register your interest here.

Due to the continued uncertainty over Covid- 19, we have taken the difficult decision to delay the new course for a year.

We will be updating our website over the next few days to reflect these changes.

Important changes to our course structure.

From September 2021, 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.

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.
