How to Select a 
Training Pathway


You may wish to consider some of the following to help you decide:


  • Think about your end goal, who would you like to teach and how?
  • Have you heard of any of the trainers or organisations and/or have they been recommended to you?
  • Would you like to attend a teacher training retreat or attend training in blocks or modules?
  • What accreditation or academic qualification would you like to gain?
  • How far would you be prepared to travel?
  • What kind of support do you need with your training?
  • Are you being funded or self-funding?
  • Are you interested in research? Explore the training that enables you to achieve this.
  • Take your time, ask around and make contact with the organisations that sound most suitable.
