AMI Teacher Training
The Association Montessori Internationale affiliates training centres throughout the world. These centres offer AMI diploma courses that are recognised internationally for their quality and authenticity.
The courses offered by the Association Montessori Internationale prepare adults to work with children at the following levels:
- Assistants to Infancy (0-3)
- Primary (3-6)
- First Plane (0-6)
- Elementary (6-12)
Work is also underway to document the current body of knowledge relating to Montessori education for the 12-18 year age group and an Orientation programme for teachers (in collaboration with NAMTA) is available.
Each year thousands of teachers and classroom assistants are trained worldwide.
All training centres are staffed by highly qualified AMI teacher trainers supported by a pedagogical team of experienced advisors to ensure that the objectives of Maria Montessori’s pedagogical principles are upheld. Students are examined by external examiners appointed by AMI, the role of which also serves to maintain the high standard and integrity of AMI course programmes.
As well as serving their local community, some AMI training centres hold courses at satellite locations.
