As of 2022, there is space in the training course for 1 post-graduate (PG) per day*.
For teachers who have just graduated, this is a good opportunity to refine their skills and maintain consistency in working with the Technique. Experienced teachers often benefit from a longer PG trajectory (one or more weeks), being included in the daily timetable and receiving attention adapted to your level of experience.
Currently, a morning as PG teacher consists of:
- A 15-20 minute turn from Paul or Tessa.
- The day's 'game' or 'directed activity' is demonstrated with the PG teacher and taught afterwards to the students.
- Participation in the 'hands-on' group led by Paul or Tessa, assisting with the procedures that are applicable to the student's level at the time.
You have the possibility to refine your work while working with the students and exchange with the other visiting teachers. We give the PG teacher individual attention and show our more in-depth approach to the subtlety and clarity of our 'hands-on' work and practical teaching.
Many teachers with different styles often use similar words and phrases to describe what they are doing, and yet the hands-on experience can seem at times surprisingly different.
Our thorough grounding and structured approach to our teacher training can be refreshing and enriching for teachers from all traditions and backgrounds.Past participants have found our work very enriching and nourishing for their individual growth as Alexander Teachers.
The costs are 60 Euro per day.
*Attendance as a 'Visiting Teacher' (VT) is possible, without a turn from Paul & Tessa, but with an exchange with other teachers or senior students and to work on yourself (free of charge).
