The new format for the EACAT three year training course is as follows:-
Twelve hours in-person training each week will take place on Monday and Thursday from 9.30 to 3pm. There will be a 45 minute lunch break from 12.45 to 1.30pm
One Saturday per month there will be an in-house workshop from 10am to 1pm covering a variety of topics relevant to the course.
There will be additional on-line study, primarily covering Anatomy and Alexander Technique books. These sessions will run for 90 minutes, preceded by 30 minutes spent by students to read and/or explore the subject matter to be presented on-line. These sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 9.30pm.
Students will be encouraged to keep a reflective journal throughout the training period giving the opportunity to see progression through the course. The 'how to' and benefits will be presented at the start of the course.
A required reading list will be given in writing, plus there will be many more optional books relating to Alexander Technique to hand.
3rd year students will be given the opportunity to work on visiting pupils, and 1st and 2nd year students. Additionally 3rd year students will be given the opportunity to have a private lesson with teachers outside of the team delivering the course. This will amount to one per term, i.e. 3 outside lessons in the final year. These will be funded by EACAT however students will be expected to pay the travel costs. This facility will give a rounded experience out of the course environment and an opportunity to gain a variety of extra knowledge about working as a teacher one to one.
Course costs for those starting in April 2024 will be fixed at £1,500 per term for the three year training as an opening offer. Subsequent student fees will be fixed at £1,600 per term for the three year training. In addition, the course will run the training school terms in line with the State school system of holidays which will help those with school aged children, and also give opportunities for personal holidays/leisure pursuits, or simply getting some R&R.
