The Alexander Teacher Training School offers Teachers from other Trainings to participate in further Training to complement and supplement their skills and understanding. The ATTS had a reputation as a supportive and creative space where young Teachers can explore their work in a mutually supportive environment.
Over the years, the ATTS has welcomed Teachers from the UK and Nationally to join the Training programme for part of a term, a full term, and sometimes even more in-depth study.
The main focus of the post-graduate Trainings is the refinement of hands-on skill, and the development of a wide range of strategies to adapt to the individual needs of their pupils. The post-grad study includes supervised clinical practice, with the aim of enhancing confidence and depth of work.
Over the years, many ATTS students have decide to continue training at the ATTS after graduation in order to benefit from a 10th term study period. They have found this time to be invaluable for their personal development and career potential.
The ATTS is very happy to offer weekly postgraduate meetings and workshops where the graduates work together in a lively and creative interchange of work. The ATTS post-grad group meet up every Thursday at the ATTS, between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm.
The Group invites many expert Teachers to offer seminars and workshops on a variety of themes relevant to the practice of the Alexander Technique. Examples of these workshops include:
Working with Hypermobility
The Emotional aspects of the Alexander Technique with Anthony Kingsley
February 28th, 2019 “Working with Children” with Judith Kleinman
And since CPD is now a required element for all graduates, the ATTS provides this space for ongoing work. And beneficially, expenses occurring from CPD can be offset against income.
