Dear Friends, For the first time, it may soon be possible to receive a recognised degree in Steiner Waldorf Education in Ireland. Much work has already gone into creating a wonderfully engaging two year curriculum by a team from Sligo Institute of Technology and the Irish Steiner Kindergarten Association, in anticipation of beginning the course in the Autumn of 2010. In the next months the proposal will be brought forward for confirmation. One of the essential pieces is to show that, in fact, there is significant interest in a Steiner/Waldorf-based Masters degree in Early Childhood Education.
That's where you come in. Jonathan Angus, Co-director of the ISKA Early Childhood Education Programme has prepared an easy-to-complete survey which he is asking people to fill in. There is no need to commit to anything, only to voice interest in such a course. If enough people respond, it will be clear that the time has come to begin such a programme.
Please support this initiative by emailing Jonathan for a copy of the survey. firstname.lastname@example.org It would also be helpful for you to send this request on to anyone that you know who might have an interest in helping to bring about this development. Thank you for your help forging this exciting new pathway for the recognition of Steiner Waldorf Early Years teachers.
PS. It should be noted that completion of any prior degree programmes would not be a prerequisite to join this course. Third and Fourth level education has become far more inclusive in recent years, and Sligo IT is progressive in using Recognition of Prior Learning (often through work and life experience) to enroll mature students.
Our aim is to provide a forum and means of communication for friends of anthroposophy. News, notices and pictures are welcome from people living in Ireland and in some way involved in anthroposophy. Please send to:
email@example.com and indicate your connection.
