Teacher training and professional development

In many countries with Waldorf schools there are training opportunities for Waldorf teachers. The forms these training take vary from country to country. These range from state recognised full time programmes to part time courses attached to schools. There is also a range of specialist subject teacher training programmes, some of which are also part time. Recently several opportunities for distance learning have been established.

It is also possible in most countries to train as a kindergarten teacher and even in some cases courses for carers of very young children exist.
