ITM TRAINING COURSES
The ITM Teacher Training Course is a four-year training course for the study of the work of FM Alexander. The course combines elements of lesson experience, text study, discussion and practical teaching technique over a broad range of topics. Because the primary purpose of studying with the ITM is personal development and life-enhancement, the ITM Teacher Training Course is suitable for all, not just people who wish to become teachers.
In addition to the ITM Teacher Training Course, the Advanced Teacher Training Course is a four-year training course open to ITM teachers who wish to continue their personal and professional development and to deepen their understanding of the ITM approach.
Together, the two ITM training courses provide the most comprehensive approach currently available for the study of the FM Alexander Technique.
THE ITM TEACHER TRAINING COURSE MODULES
The ITM Teacher Training Course is divided into three sections.
Designed for the general public, in the first three modules trainees study the basic principles to be found in Alexander’s work, the principles and structures that govern human movement and life-changing material from the fields of success education and business management.
The next three modules provide an in-depth study of practical anatomy as it relates to movement and the use of hands in teaching, as well as a more detailed study of Alexander’s four books.
The fourth year of the training cycle enables students to take what they have learned to synthesise a personal way to teach Alexander’s work in a creative ITM manner.
“I didn’t realise that studying Mr. Alexander’s work was going to be such a journey. The training course is wider in scope than I imagined. Not only is it a chance to rethink my ideas, but also to rethink the process of learning itself. It has offered me a glimpse into the freedoms that I have: not only in how I move, but in how I want to live.”
