FAPSA Accredited Training

Many of FAPSA’s Associations offer professional development, training, and educational workshops in the pedagogy unique to Philosophy for Children practitioners, the Community of Inquiry, along with other useful skills in getting started and then furthering one’s knowledge, techniques, and practice in philosophy in schools. These practical and theoretically rich workshops are offered in three levels, with associated criteria, content, prerequisites, and assessments.

We offer:

Introductory Philosophy for Children Workshop.

Upon successful completion (which includes some assessment as detailed in this attachment), participants receive a FAPSA-accredited

“Introductory Philosophy for Children Certificate”. 

Participants may undergo the workshop and decline to complete the assessment.

Advanced Practice Workshop

Successful completion results in a FAPSA-accredited

“Advanced Practice Certificate.”  



Teacher-Educator Workshop 

Successful completion results in a FAPSA-accredited
