SVEB Certificate Course Instructor

Are you a course instructor in psychological, social, personality development, spiritual or health-related topics and are you aiming for a new level of professionalism? Do you want to qualify for this activity at a high level and thus expand your opportunities for teaching mandates? With this study programme you will receive SVEB certification, which is specifically geared towards demanding teaching activities in the soft skills area.

This training to become a course leader will help you to plan, conduct and evaluate your teaching units professionally. The living sense training "SVEB Certificate Course Leader" is structured according to the most modern learning psychology and enables you to design lessons according to the integral teaching approach.

Integral teaching involves the human being on all levels of being (body, mind-spirit, feeling & soul) in the design of learning settings. Learning thus becomes a sustainably anchored development.

Various training elements such as the learning diary, the learning team, etc. contribute to your holistic development as a competent course leader. The current course events are used again and again to convey or deepen the learning content of the training. You will benefit from an insight- and experience-oriented teaching style. Extraordinary learning settings such as "learning in nature" or "teaching coaching" also find their place.

This course is particularly suitable for teachers who attach importance to developing their students' subject competence as well as their methodological, social and personal competence.

Planned implementations are available on the Living Sense website.
