The Melbourne Rudolf Steiner Seminar

Our vision is to support healthy human development through education based upon anthroposophical insights, as a way of contributing to ethical social renewal and a sustainable future.”

The practical expression of this vision will be brought through providing teacher development in Waldorf/Steiner education, and by growing a rich cultural community life out of anthroposophical initiatives.

The Melbourne Rudolf Steiner Seminar Ltd offers a range of programs to further our vision and mission based upon the work of Rudolf Steiner. It is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 3948 CRICOS Provider 01812M) approved to deliver qualification courses to both local and international students. 

The Seminar has been offering teacher and adult education and transformative personal development courses for 50 years to local and international students. It is a member of Steiner Education Australia, the national association of Steiner education providers.

Steiner Education is the most rapidly expanding education in the world.

There is a great demand for Steiner trained teachers. Graduates find employment in early childhood settings, primary and secondary schools and in roles working with children with special needs.
