Here at MK Pilates we have three different levels for Pilates Matwork Teacher Training.
- Level 3 Foundation Diploma
- Silver Diploma
- Gold Elite Diploma
Our Level 3 Foundation Diploma is the UK Level 3 Matwork Pilates Diploma qualification with Active IQ and is structured to take 3-6 months to complete, although the amount of time you can commit to study and practice can reduce or extend this period to anything from the 3 to 12 months.
The Silver Matwork Diploma can take 6-12 months to complete and offers more face to face time as well as practice time and breaks the work down into three distinct sections: Foundation Group, Intermediate & Advanced Group and personal Training 1:1 introducing small equipment. For people coming into the industry for the first time, who do not specifically need the UK Level 3, this is the most popular way to build your confidence and knowledge to be able to teach in any environment.
The Gold Elite Diploma meets the new SPM (Society for the Pilates Method) Pilates Matwork Standard and covers more hours and more subjects such as Special Populations, Small Equipment and Functional Anatomy days. Also we require more case studies for clients on a One to One basis and with this Diploma you are eligible, upon completion, to go onto the Register of SPM Teachers.
There are no formal entry requirements for any of these diplomas, other than some practical experience of the Pilates Matwork, and of course a strong desire for and a belief in Pilates, which you bring to your education to become the best teacher possible.
Plus you can build your training pathway by starting with the Level 3, start teaching and upskilling to the Silver and eventually the Gold Elite as we believe as we know from experience that as you gain experience from teaching you will feel the need to add to you education.
At present we offer both a full face to face education or blended, where you may do some of your time in live online situations and then also include some in-person face to face time. In individual cases a fully online option is available by prior agreement. All courses include online video content as part of your study material.
Please reach out to us to discuss your individual situation if you have specific goal dates or are concerned about the time commitment.
