Practical part of the course:
Daily practical work to improve co-ordination leads into the experience of using
oneself to convey improvement to pupils.
These basic skills must be brought together to form a high level of personal co-ordination that can be reliably maintained. The trainee can then learn to use manual guiding procedures devised by F.M. Alexander, for passing on to future pupils these acquired skills.
Such "hands-on" technique is necessarily supplemented by verbal explanation, so trainees are encouraged to develop good communication and clear voice production.
characteristics of the Teacher Training Course at Alexander Technique Centre
The school is kept small, with a high teacher-student ratio. Three levels of training are in progress simultaneously. We find that students are greatly helped by contact with teachers who are at different stages of their teaching career.
Classes are loosely structured, depending on individual needs and progress. Trainees are expected to be sufficiently mature to take advantage of the possibilities of observation and explanation that such a framework offers.
Classes are given in French and English.
The group is multi-lingual.
Translation and correct use of words is an important element of regular discussion sessions.
There is no formal examination, as qualification results from a process of
continuous assessment over at least three years, by the Head of Training and Principal
After graduation, newly qualified teachers are encouraged to remain for a post-graduate teaching term, to gain further teaching experience in the supportive environment of the Training Course.
To teachers newly qualified at the Alexander Technique Centre, there is no charge for this post-graduate term.
Teachers trained elsewhere pay normal fees for a post-graduate term.
From 12 September 2016 till 16 December 2016
Fees : 2200 Euro per term, payable in advance.
The course take place in Rue Ernestine 2 b, 1050 Brussels (Ixelles).
