São Paolo: teacher training center becomes a university

June 2018

The teacher training center in São Paolo has been around for 40 years. Many Brazilian Waldorf teachers are trained here (sometimes also teachers from other Latin American countries).

Five years ago, Melanie Guerra and her colleagues started working to establish the conditions for university accreditation by the Ministry of Education. In 2017, this transition was made successfully. The center can now train teachers for all state and non-state schools in Brazil. “With our status as a university, we can officially represent the Waldorf movement and anthroposophy in Brazil", explains Melanie Guerra, Director of the Faculdade Rudolf Steiner. “The work is now more academic, and we have a lot more contact with public administration and with different universities, here and in Europe”.
