Teacher Training

While teachers face many challenges and threats in Lebanon due to political and economic instability and insecurity, FiSTA-Beirut offers a Teacher Training Program in Curative Education in order to support teachers on all levels, whether spiritually, theoretically or practically.

Our teacher-training program helps our instructors pursue a certificate in curative education. It mainly serves as a reference for participants who have questions regarding requirements, curriculum, procedures and assessment. Plus it aims to benefit novice and experienced teachers.

The Curative Education and Social Therapy Council and the Medical Section in Goetheanum recognize Step Together School of Curative Education as a training center for curative education. The Certificate Program in Curative Education at FiSTA-Beirut is a three-year one, which aims to provide professional training and certification in Curative Education.
Successful graduates are issued one of the following two certificates:

• Practical Certificate endorsed by FiSTA-Beirut
• Curative Education Certificate endorsed by the International Council for Curative Education and Social Therapy

Three levels of certification are available:
• Certificate of Completion of Level I (after year 1)
• Certificate of Completion of Level II (after year 2)
• Curative Education Certificate/ Practical Certificate (after year 3)

The participants’ will, feelings and thoughts are all taken into consideration during all the training program’s activities, courses and workshops. Another important factor is for them to complete the required assignments. What’s more, training is integrated with practice and takes place within the Step Together community.
