Our teaching staff

The Seminar has a body of regular tutors and also calls on practising, experienced teachers to bring a fresh taste of what they are doing in their classrooms. This combination of familiar and new faces means that students are able to build up relationships with tutors they meet regularly while, at the same time, getting a glimpse into many of the different ways in which the Steiner Waldorf curriculum has been interpreted.
