New Conductive Education training in Germany

I have heard today that the degree course at Nurnberg is all set to start up later this year in September at  Evangelischen Hochschule Nürnberg ( . For the past few years work has been going on to get the course organised and receive the necessary Ministry approval and it seems that has been obtained.

Students  will become  graduates with a BA ,  specializing in Conductive Support.  A degree just for Conductive Education is planned for the future.There is no mention of who will be teaching the course or exactly where practice will take place, it will be somewhere in Europe, I think – my German is very rusty! I would be grateful if someone corrects me if I have misunderstood anything.

A lecture and discussion by Peter Limbrick

In this lecture Peter will argue that, as an essential part of modernising Early Childhood Intervention / Early Support, radical change is needed in the working practices of both teachers and therapists – and in how they work together. From this change will come a 21st Century system that reduces the potential for stress and strain on children, saves families’ time and energy, and makes far better use of practitioners’ time.

Cost (to include light vegetarian lunch): £45.00. Some free places for parents.
