Sloka Steiner Waldorf Teacher Training (SSWTT)

The program has undergone a process of review, revision and renewal in its 4th successful year.

This is a very special year for us with Sloka turning 21 and the Waldorf Movement itself meeting the century mark. So this year, the course is intended to provide all participants with a view into the Principles of Waldorf Education.

 Modular Steiner Waldorf Teacher Training

After Sloka pioneered Steiner – Waldorf pedagogy in India, it’s become imperative to have a formalised Teacher Training that would be recognized in all the 150 Countries that have Steiner Waldorf Schools. In 2017-18 Sloka is launching The Sloka Teacher Training College with three modules. These three modules will be conducted by highly qualified mentors from India and abroad. Sloka’s 650 children and its lovely 3.5 acre Campus afford trainees a practical hand-on orientation to the whole Training Programme.

Essentials of Waldorf Education is the FIRST module

This will examine key concepts such as the Goal of Waldorf Education, the Importance of Rhythm, Repetition & Recall, Movement & Rhythm, Math and Form, Joy and Laughter, Why we do blocks?, Significance of Day & Night, Remembering & Forgetting as well as similar ideas that form the core of what we try to accomplish in a Waldorf School. Practical tips such as Setting up a Classroom, Class Management, Nature tables & Festivals, Sensory Integration, Time Tabling, Main Lesson Books and Interaction with Parents will also be provided.

Artistic Teaching & Inner Work is the SECOND module

This will provide insights into the quest for artistic self­development that drives every teacher working with children in a Waldorf School. We will explore storytelling, handwork, poetry, form drawing, music, child observation, report writing, play, speech and art. We will discuss their place and significance in the context of a Waldorf school, with examples of how we incorporate them into the curriculum.

The Upside­down Sciences of the Waldorf School is the THIRD and FINAL module

This will tackle the three steps of the logical process as proposed by Steiner – conclusion, judgment, and concept. This module will throw light on how Geography, Festivals, Geometry, Calenders, Seasons, Astronomy are interconnected. It will explore the relationship between Free play and Geography as well as Cooking and Chemistry. The course will also look at how the Experiments from KG to Upper School and the Stories and Songs of the elementary school, strengthen and lead to the Sciences in Middle and Upper School.

We hope that teachers across India will take this opportunity to deepen and renew their connection with these vital principles that hold up Waldorf Education in our country. We also look forward to seeing more parents, so we can build bridges between the home and the school, thereby keeping the child in an environment of shared responsibility and trust. We are eager to see people who are curious about Waldorf Education or are exploring options with a view to eventually teach.

We regret that since we are working, we will not be able to provide accommodation to outstation candidates, nor will we be able to accommodate participants’ children in the school for the duration of the course. However, we will be happy to direct you to nearby accommodation options.
