Course Structure

There are three components to this Pathway
icons
Course Delivery.

Get hands-on with the “nuts + bolts” of the Pilates Method in-person. These sessions are led by Pilates ITC Educators and explore:

  • Pilates theory.
  • Repertoire.
  • Teaching skills.
icons
Work Placement.

Your on-the-job learning! Watch, practice, explore. (WP hours are determined according to credited qualification.)

Observation hours: watch and learn observing the pros at work.

Teaching hours: practice teaching friends, family and other Students (self-scheduled); and co-instructing (shadowing) qualified Instructors.

Teaching Clinics (optional): hone teaching skills, boost confidence and expedite teaching hours under supervision.

icons
Self-Directed Learning.

The “studying” part. Access our mixed-media resources to work your assessment schedule at your own pace. (Assessment requirement is determined according to credited qualification.)

  • Course work: keep up with reading, written tasks (eg: programming) and self-audit.
  • Assessments: stick to the plan to prepare for your assignments, written examinations and practical assessments.
  • Self-mastery: the doing part! Experiencing the Method in your own body is essential to the teaching process! Diploma Students are required to do one group class or Studio session per week, as a minimum, according to Stage of study for the duration of your course. But more is always better!

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Honouring your experience.

Why RPL?

If you have completed Pilates Instructor training with another education body, or have other formal movement- or science-based qualification(s) from Australia or overseas you may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

RPL can be applied to credit your existing experience against accredited Pilates ITC units to expedite your course completion (and save you money in the process!); OR to honour your experience in non-accredited Pilates courses, and set you up to formalise your existing qualification.

How do you begin?

RPL is a thorough and personalised process, our team is on hand to walk you through your options and find your best fit with Pilates ITC.

In the mean time, learn some more here or give us a call on (08) 9330 4570 before you hit enrol!

Pricing

The dollars and cents.$3,000

$3,000 total course price: including $600 deposit. Student finance is available through Study Loans.

• A complete qualification that’s yours for life: no expiration.
• Qualification to teach group Matwork, group Reformer, and Studio Pilates in private (1:1) and semi-Private (3:1) settings.
• Administrative and Educator support, whenever you need it!
• Access to the finest Pilates facilities in the country via our affiliate network.

• Bonus: membership of a connected, supportive Pilates community and new friends for life!

Self-mastery: learning the Pilates Method in your own body by doing classes, is compulsory part of your course and attracts additional cost as determined by our Instructor Training- and Work Placement Studios. (Our affiliates generously offer PITC Students discounted rates on SM – however is set at their discretion.)

Teaching Clinics

Meeting self-scheduled teaching hours can be one of the more challenging logistical aspects of Work Placement (finding bodies and time and space to suit all of the above!)

Teaching Clinics (optional) were developed to lighten this load by giving Students more opportunities to workshop their teaching skills in an Educator-supported environment, and bank WP hours in the process.

• Practice on a large group (simulate real-world group class!)
• Work through the aspects of repertoire that are challenging for you.
• Workshop ideas with your peers and Educators.
• Get feedback.
• Feel confident in your teaching skills!

Better still, each Teaching Clinic hour equals two hours of approved teaching experience.

1 hour = 2 hours of teaching experience.

Teaching Clinics run for five (5) hours in total and are delivered in clinic format against set topics (units of competency), so you can complete 10 hours of WP in one session! These sessions can be added to your schedule any time for only $75 per session: booked at point of enrolment or later!
