As the course is also about making materials for use with the children and the objective is that you will be all set at the end of the course, to establish an elementary level class; a certain amount of attention is paid to making these.
You may have to spend about fifteen thousand on procuring materials.
A general list of materials will be given at the outset and specifics described as presentations are done for each subject.
The medium of language is English. Many improve their language fluency as they do the course, both in speaking, comprehension and writing. That said, and understanding the situation all round the world, the course materials and presentations are handed out by the Centre, so that the subject albums are in good English.
You are expected to illustrate, make additional notes, write your reflections, for your own understanding, so that the album is an active guide for your work over the years.
Students have to share their work to the class which results in improving skills of presentation and public speaking.
The recordings may be available for short periods or put up on a private channel for students. This possibility is being explored at the moment and if similar conditions and facilities are available, this may happen soon enough.
The Centre is opened through the year and practice classes or contact classes are scheduled for each batch, looking at prevailing conditions. If you are going to be around the Centre, schedule a meeting or inform the coordinator or administrator.
Yes, private schools welcome Montessori trained teachers, especially at the elementary level, even if the schools do not follow the Montessori method. International schools too, see this course as additional qualification.
However, each country has their own rules, which need to be adhered to, and you may have to qualify yourself to work in the specific country.
