For those interested in learning to teach OSF who need more experience in the practice before entering the OSF Teacher Certification Program. OSF Pre-TT includes the full spectrum of introductory OSF material, improvisation sessions, & in-depth discussions about methods & underlying concepts.
Though not a commitment to the full OSF Teacher Certification Program, the 3-week Pre-Training Program provides prerequisites** & a sense of the nature of OSF Teacher Certification, to better know if it’s for you. It’s a ‘first pass’ at the complex array of considerations hidden behind the teaching veil, all required to effectively facilitate these transformative sessions.
Unless you have many years’ experience with this practice — & even if you do — this preparatory program is recommended for all OSF teacher-trainees. It renders the rigors of OSF Teacher Certification more digestible, less overwhelming, and more fun! Sufficient experience in the less-demanding-but-rigorous atmosphere of OSF Pre-TT makes all the difference in maximum digestion during Certification and, ultimately a gratifying & successful teaching career. Though there are no short-cuts in this training, we come to appreciate the rich rewards of an authentic, grounded process that guides us smoothly along our journey.
** If you’ve already had the equivalent of one two-week OSF workshop, this 3-week program will complete your prerequisites for our next OSF Teacher Certification Programs.
OSF is creatively empowering for both teachers & their students. A rigorous, soul-expanding program, OSF Teacher Certification gives a solid grounding in methods & deep understanding of the work, ultimately empowering teachers & their students to expand OSF to adapt to changing circumstances in our lives & worlds, & integrate it with other practices they embrace. A key mission is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet.
