The symposium on the emerging occupation “Comprehensive Pilates Teacher” organised by Lesley McPherson, Director of the Pilates Teacher Association (PTA), held in Lancaster on 7th December 2018, was a key feature of the weekend conference and heralds the start of the process towards the formal recognition of the occupation and standards from 2020.
The PTA was keen to ensure that as many training providers and teachers are involved from the start of the process to help develop the Comprehensive Pilates Teacher standards.
Yolande Green, our technical expert in Pilates, attended on behalf of PD:Approval and thought that it was a great event where everyone contributed something. Yolande told us, “It was great to see an arena where we were able to discuss best practice and ideas to shape this industry.”
PD:Approval will keep you updated with more information on how this progresses but in the meantime take a look at their Facebook page.
