Mission, vision, & values
OUR TEACHER TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Our multi-level program guides students to master the teaching technique on their apparatus and to be able to convey information safely and confidently in their future classes. What sets our program apart from others is the focus we put on understanding how the human body moves and what is necessary to perform each movement correctly. A lot of time is spent studying techniques to keep students safe during every movement, as well as basic spotting technique for safety, learning styles, classroom management, and creative ideas.
A certificate of competency will be given upon completion of this course.
Each meeting will have a workload of 3 hours. 2 hours will be allocated to Pole Sport technique (in person) and 1 hour of Anatomy and Biomechanics (online).
The manuals and material are provided by Training Shoes in PDF and paper format. A shared platform will be enabled with each student to facilitate and speed up file communication.
