Level 2 Teacher Educator Workshops in 2017

FAPSA runs Level 2 teacher training courses for teacher educators in philosophy in schools. These courses are designed for those who have completed Level 1 training and have either gained considerable experience as classroom practitioners or else have completed an Honours or higher degree in philosophy. Level 2 courses are normally residential and run for 5 days.

FAPSA issues certificates in three categories: Teacher-Educator (Classroom Practice), for those whose experience comes from the classroom; Teacher-Educator (Philosopher), for those whose background is primarily academic; and full Teacher-Educator  certification for those who have both related classroom experience and appropriate academic qualifications. FAPSA certified trainers normally assist the associate organisations of FAPSA in the delivery of Level 1 certificate programs and related professional development.
