Ongoing class for A.T. teachers, postgraduate students, trainee teachers, potential trainee teachers and experienced students

Ongoing session

(Update: 24 August 2021 - we are continuing in-person classes from 8th Sept in Wilmslow, with the first 'Thursday Class' on 9th Sept. Rooms are well-ventilated and teachers are required to wear masks when putting on hands.)

MATTS offers a special weekly opportunity for professional development at the "Thursday Class" specifically designed for teachers of all levels of experience to meet and work in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. 

The class is part of the Manchester Alexander Technique Training School (MATTS) and offers:

  • A friendly and supportive environment for teachers

  • CPD hours for new teachers (including the option to attend as a post-graduate student)

  • A traditional training environment

  • Experience and preparation for those considering training as a teacher in the future

  • An opportunity for advanced study for enthusiastic students

Regular teachers include Peter Bloch (director of MATTS), Malcolm Williamson (the Director of MATTS 2001-2017), Jane Osgood (assistant director of MATTS), Liz Hulse, Gillian Thorndyke, Jane Evans, Gillian Pierce, Sue Fleming, Jenny Fox Eades, Annalisa Faenza, Sue Fergusson, Rhiannon Jones, Charlotte Woods, Su Harrison, Andrea Hughes - and many more. And most weeks we are visited by other teachers from this area and from further afield.

The class runs on about 40 weeks each year (see dates here) and we usually number around 20, more than half of whom are qualified teachers. Teachers and students are welcome to attend as and when they wish, without notice. Students new to our classes are requested to check with me before their first visit.

All teachers are warmly invited to visit on any class day; with the re-opening of MATTS Thursdays continue, as before, to be at least as much for teachers as for students, offering an exceptionally friendly and supportive environment for teachers at every level of experience.
