Summary: 

Training Permaculture Teachers (TPT) is an international teachers training course offered in English and organised by 12P Permaculture Design. The course will be available to PDC holders from any country.

The invasion of the Ukraine and the hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking asylum in the European Union has focused attention on the issue of mass migration. There is now a much greater opportunity to support displaced people by teaching and training refugees to teach and train each other. As the Permaculture for Refugees international work group states, “Our aim is to support refugees in transforming the places where they live —be these refugee camps or communities in receivng countries — into productive permaculture-designed communities, and ulitmately to equip them for integration into society for the collective benefit of all.”

Join us for an intensive training that will provide you with an invaluable toolkit to use in the classroom, as well as life in general. The internationally-renowned teacher Rosemary (Rowe) Morrow’s TPT course draws on her decades of permaculture teaching experience. Whether you are already a teacher, or thinking of becoming one, the TPT training makes teaching a transformative and fun exchange. Classrooms (indoor and outdoor) will never be the same again!

While this course has a specific focus in how to facilitate permaculture education with refugees and migrants, the TPT is designed for anyone who wants to teach permaculture based on Rosemary’s participatory learning methods.

Summary: 

The course will cover two major aspects of teaching Permaculture:
1. The Curriculum, as agreed by the Education Working Group of the Permaculture Association Britain (of which Graham is currently Chair) see https://www.permaculture.org.uk/.../pdc-core-curriculum... for details
2. Practical techniques for teaching effectively
Our intention in offering this course is to follow on from Bill Mollison’s original insight, that the world was in dire need of sustainable solutions to reverse the human destruction of our ecosystems, to provide for human needs in a better way which respects not just the requirements of a burgeoning human race, but of all the life on planet Earth, limiting our consumption and more fairly sharing our resources.
It is forty-six years since Permaculture was first proposed as a coherent, well thought out system for consciously designing for these priorities. From the outset Bill encouraged people to go and ‘spread the word’ (and thousands have, resulting in millions who have experienced Permaculture insight in one form or another).
We believe it is important to continue to grow the body of people who are sharing this wisdom and its practical application around the world. Between us we have worked with several thousand people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. We are passionate that the quality of how we deliver courses has a direct effect on the outcome of the considerable effort that people make to take up this learning in the first place.

Following on from the success of the two online teacher training course in 2020 we have been asked by several people to run it again 

"If you think it's impossible to have an immersive permaculture course experience in an online setting, you haven't met Graham and Rakesh before. I would never have imagined to be able to experience the amount of community, emotion and connectedness in an online setting as I felt in the online Permaculture Teacher course I followed with them.

Hopeful, inspiring, empowering... The permaculture course comes to life when Graham tells his stories. Enchanting you with his words, you only realize afterwards that the one speaking and giving content to these tales, has actually been you.

If permaculture was a person, it would be Rakesh. With his amount of dedication and passion for permaculture imbedded in his whole being, he plants seeds whenever he speaks and moves, and in every footstep he leaves behind, seeds sprout to grow into the rooted network of abundant knowledge that may change your life for the better." Zoe Martin (Feeback from last training April/May 2020)

We offer a unique creative opportunity, to further develop facilitation skills of those who wish to share the profound potential and effectiveness of the Cultural Emergence toolkit.

Our course vision is to create a community of Cultural Emergence facilitators, who will inspire transformation and contribute to the growth of a life sustaining culture.

This training invites you to celebrate your pathway, build confidence, and become a skilled and empowered facilitator and designer.
There are 2 main strands to your learning during this training.

The first strand is to develop your facilitation toolkit and confidence as a facilitator. You are given many opportunities to practice your facilitation in different contexts, building your confidence within the context of the safe space we co-create as a group. You will learn ways to create group cultures of collective intelligence and responsibility.

The second strand is to integrate the Cultural Emergence into your life and embed it into your thinking. You will use the toolkit to create a culture of personal leadership for yourself, allowing your genius to shine through. Throughout the year you will be building your Cultural Emergence portfolio of designs and personal reflection work.

These 2 strands will give you the tools, motivation and empowerment you need to share the Cultural Emergence toolkit within your communities
