Intensive Summer Course 2019 29th July - 9th August (Mon-Fri) Exams on 10th & 11th August. Venue TBC...
Each summer we offer an Intensive Summer Course in Montessori Classroom Practice. This course also forms the workshop component for our Level 4 Diploma course. This unique course is an excellent stand-alone introduction to Montessori for untrained practitioners working in a Montessori environment who need an intensive orientation to Montessori classroom practice. The fee includes the practical assessment at the end of the workshop.
The workshop is open to anyone with an interest in learning how to handle the Montessori materials, or who wishes to know more about the Montessori approach. This is the workshop element needed for completion of the Montessori Partnership Level 4 Diploma in Early Years Education. If you undertake the workshop and then wish to enrol on the L4 Diploma, your fees will be adjusted accordingly.
The summer workshop for the Montessori Partnership Diploma in Early Years Education Course by distance learning will start on Monday 29th July, and run for 10 days, with the last day being Friday 9th August. Exams are held on the 10th & 11th of August.
There are no classes scheduled over the weekend, so anyone coming for the workshop will have the opportunity for free time. A detailed timetable of the sessions will be sent out with joining instructions nearer the start date.
Workshop sessions start promptly at 9:00 each day, with a short break for coffee mid-morning and an hour for lunch, usually between 1:00 and 2:00. There is a break in the afternoon session also, and the workshop day ends at 6:00. It is very important that you fit in as much practice with the materials as possible during the day. Some time will be set aside for this within the timetable of each day, but you should plan to use some of your lunch hour to practise in this way as well.
Tea and coffee are supplied, but you need to bring a packed lunch.
During these two intensive weeks you:
- learn how to use the materials through hands-on practice
- come to understand how the materials support the child’s development
- learn how to recognise what the child needs and how to respond
- come to understand the importance of the prepared environment
- become confident in being the dynamic link between the materials and the child
All registered students may take their practical examination, to be held on Saturday 10th August. Written exams will be held in the morning on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August for any student who has completed all their coursework.
Fees: £1360, to be paid before attending.
If you are a Level 3 EYE student, there will be a charge of £226.67 on top of your full course fees.
