Completion of the two days of training, together with a short practical assignment, leads to official endorsement by the Federation of Australasian Philosophy in Schools Association (FAPSA).
The workshop presenters are academics and teachers with extensive experience in philosophy in schools, including the publication of internationally recognised books for teachers and the implementation of highly successful school programs.
The cost is $600 (full-time students $350) for the two day course, which includes morning tea and handouts.
