The 3-year teacher training programme at Fellside offers:
Experienced Teachers: An opportunity to work with several teachers with at least 10 years teacher training experience plus assisting teachers and visiting teachers.

Movement: An Experienced Alexander Teacher who is a qualified Dance and Movement teacher gives specialist movement tuition.
Voice: Regular vocal instruction is on the programme and supports all students in developing expertise in this area.
Starting Your Practice: Support is given in setting up a teaching practice. One to one work with "the public" both in and out of the school is supervised. We help those who are interested in doing introductory group work to acquire skills.
Anatomy: Living and experiential anatomy that leads directly into the Alexander teaching process is an integral part of the programme.
Building and Surroundings: The course is held in a building with diverse and large spaces which accommodate a broad timetable. Outside, there are panoramic views of surrounding Lakeland countryside. Kendal and South Lakes has one of the highest "quality of life" ratings in the country.
