MK Pilates Matwork Diplomas

Course Introduction Video

With MK Pilates, we categorise any student who holds one of the Diplomas listed below as a Graduate Student of our certifications in Pilates Matwork.

We offer three different levels of our Matwork Diploma Qualification depending upon which MK Pilates Training Centre you work with.  These are identified by the hours of attendance of each course.  They are named as follows:

  • Foundation Matwork Diploma (226 hours Teacher Development Credit)
  • Standard Matwork Diploma (250 hours Teacher Development Credit)
  • Masters Matwork Diploma (415 hours Teacher Development Credit)

All three Diploma formats include our three Matwork Certifications. The Masters Diploma includes 10 days of further educational content.  For further questions about the formats please contact us.

Our Foundation Matwork Diploma offers all of the same training content as our Standard Matwork Diploma but with a shorter Face to Face time. Many new students come to us while they are still working in other occupations, or have other fulltime commitments upon their time, and then often have considerable travel to the training event location. To help with our new students in these circumstances, some of our International Centres offer the MK Pilates Foundation Matwork Diploma in modular formats, which then achieve 9 days of Face to Face time. We also offer this Foundation Matwork Diploma once a year, as an Intensive Course over 10 days, in both the UK and Greece. A Standard Matwork Diploma will achieve 12 days of Face to Face time. It should be noted however that the education content is the same for both a Foundation and a Standard Matwork Diploma but the Face to Face is condensed.

Once you have completed a Foundation Matwork Diploma you are able to upgrade your certificate by adding more courses and achieve a Standard Matwork Diploma Qualification by adding more personal development hours to achieve the total hours required for a Standard Matwork Diploma.

Our Standard Matwork Diploma is our main Matwork Certification and consists of our three Matwork Certifications as detailed below. Each of the certifications consists of 4 days of education in either a modular, typically 2 x 2 days, or as a 4 day intensive event format for delivery. This results in 12 days of Face to Face tutor led time, and along with your home study time, personal practice hours, and all Assessment processes you achieve our maximum credit of educational development hours for Matwork Pilates.

Our Masters Matwork Diploma not only offers the Matwork Stage One, Two and Three but also our five Functional Anatomy one day courses, as well as three small equipment one day course and two special populations days. The details of these are available below by clicking on the button.

We feel that all instructors should be able to manage many different clients with different and challenging physical needs and it is through the additional courses we bring more education to you that address these needs.

It may take several years to achieve this level of qualification as many students who start with us on a Foundation or Standard Matwork Diploma continue with the education and reach Masters Level in their own timeframe.

A Master Matwork Diploma is not scheduled as one series of dates. It can be achieved in pieces and elements such as small equipment or anatomy can be attended even before a Standard Matwork Diploma is completed. Please have a look at our DIARY, consult with your Training Centre or through our website for further education or guidance with your training Pathway choices.

Supplementary Modules

Each Matwork Course has different assessment processes however MK Pilates requires all students to complete an Anatomy, Physiology and Pilates multiple choice theory paper of 35 questions before any certificates can be issued. The one paper covers all three courses with further elements that are unique to each course.  There are Open Book (home completed) elements to all courses, as well as practical assessments of teaching skills and personal technique.

MK Pilates Training is recognised worldwide and if you live in the UK and would like to add the Level 3 Qualification to your Diploma, we offer this as a bolt on after you have completed your Standard Matwork Diploma.  Anyone outside of the UK can also choose to assess under the UK Level 3 processes.  Due to variable circumstances of the educations please contact us directly for further discussion on this topic.
