1. Certificate One and Certificate Two
This workshop gives training in both Certificate One and Certificate Two, covering the foundation principles of Human Values Education. Typically, it is a live-in experience spanning 80 hours of group work over 6 to 10 days. It is intended for those teachers and education reformers who are interested in becoming key players in the propagation and overseeing of the on-line training courses for values-based education (Mindful Teaching) in Australia and overseas. Attendance is by invitation only, and not for the general public. These Certificate One and Certificate Two workshops have been conducted in Australia and Nigeria. A shortened form has been conducted in Japan, United Kingdom, the USA, Singapore, Germany and Switzerland.
2. Introductory Workshops
These are in the form of half-day and one-day workshops for teachers and education reformers. They serve as an introduction to Human Values Education and the material covered in the intensive Certificate One and Certificate Two workshops. They are also suitable for those registered in the on-line course (Mindful Teaching) that will soon be available on this website.
3. Professional Development Workshops
The Australian Academy for Human Excellence also conducts two annual two-day workshops that give registered teachers professional development points as required for continuing registration. The two workshops are:
- Improving Students’ Classroom Behaviour using findings from values-education research, neuroscience and mindfulness studies.
- Mindful application of Values Education for Developing Self-Awareness in Early Childhood
An announcement will be made on this website when these two workshops will be made available, usually in south-east Queensland or northern New South Wales.
The Australian Academy for Human Excellence is a non-profit organisation and provides its workshops free of charge, apart from a fee to cover the costs of hiring a venue and the travel of the presenters, and the (no-profit) purchase of Handbook for Teachers in Human Values Education.
The Academy will make itself available to conduct an Introductory workshop on Human Values Education in any school throughout Australia, as far as it is possible to do so. Based in Murwillumbah (in norther NSW), members of the Academy can readily conduct workshops within 100 Km without requiring a fee for travel costs.
