Running short introductory courses, workshops and talks for groups of people is a great way to introduce the Alexander Technique to newcomers.
Eleven teachers have now completed the training course and some have already planned and run their first workshops.
This is a rigorous and professional level training based on the National Standards for further education. The training aims to show you how to plan and structure your workshops, talks and courses based on recognised principles of teaching and learning, in order to provide the best possible opportunity for your audience to learn and for you to succeed in your goals.
The course will show you how to organise and deliver your existing knowledge in order to plan, set up and run workshops and short courses that will support and enhance the teaching and learning process.
“Having prepared in the way you taught us, I realised on the way into London, that I was looking forward to it. I felt well prepared and confident in myself. In those circumstances, that is absolutely unheard of for me. I spoke for the allotted time and answered questions. I then chaired a lively, intelligent and interesting discussion. I didn’t know myself!”. Sandra Norman MSTAT.
During the training, you will create your own introductory workshop, using the knowledge and resources you have developed. At the end of the course, you will be invited to give a micro-teaching session based on the course or workshop you have created.
At the end of the course, you will be invited to have two 45-minute follow-up sessions with Caroline, to discuss and refine your lesson plans so that you are confident of delivering them.
Caroline’s course has really opened my eyes to how adults learn and how to consider these needs in both individual lessons and a group setting. Jane
The training is suitable for qualified Alexander Teachers and 8th/9th year students.
- Assessing the needs of an adult group

Following this training, there will be an opportunity to discuss the establishment of a group of teachers who are keen to work collaboratively and to a shared standard, offering workshops, courses and talks to adult groups. The aim will be to take AT to a wider audience. Those interested should contact Caroline during or after the course.
Caroline has been teaching AT for 19 years and has designed and run many successful courses for adult groups on a variety of AT topics. As a member of STAT she has served on Council, acted as Chair of the PR and Marketing Committee and Chair of the Training Course Committee.
