How to become a Steiner School teacher in Christchurch
Teaching in a Steiner school is one of the most rewarding vocations. Our aspiration as teachers is to inspire young students in their relationship to the world, in their love for their fellow humans on earth, to give them skills to effectively create a future for themselves and to find their own unique individuality.
We attempt to create Teaching into an Art form that elevates our vocation into something very meaningful.
Trained teachers with a Bachelor of Education, or with a post graduate diploma, or untrained teachers can enrol in a one or two-year course at Taruna College in Hawke’s Bay, the country’s only dedicated Steiner Training institute.
The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) offers a 3 year Bachelor of Education (Steiner) in both Early Childhood and Primary. The Federation has developed a part time 2 year In Service "Certificate of Rudolf Steiner Education" for practising teachers which is taught at Taruna.
Each school has an extensive ongoing Professional development programme in
both Steiner and State best practise and principles
Untrained teachers would be required to complete a Bachelor or equivalent degree before being employed by the school.
Taruna also offers refresher courses for all teachers throughout the year. They provide Steiner based courses in many areas including nursing, art, and agriculture.
Teachers who have been trained overseas and wish to teach in New Zealand, or have qualifications that could be cross credited towards education qualifications, will need to have their qualifications approved by the NZ Qualification Authority.
