MQ:AP Guide Training Course

Training for Montessori Quality: Authentic Practice - Supporting Reflective Development

At the start of a Montessori education service’s Montessori Quality: Authentic Practice (MQ:AP) journey, they select a staff member to become their nominated Montessori Authentic Practice (MAP) Guide. All MAP Guides will undertake training for their role.

This training will introduce a compelling new vision of the Montessori Quality Assurance Programme, and explain how we have changed to an online self-assessment process called the Montessori Quality: Authentic Practice - Supporting Reflective Development that has an integrated operational, strategic, and systemic focus on streamlined continuous improvement.

This training takes MAP Guides through the steps in the quality journey, how to do a whole service self-assessment online, and deep dives into the good practice guidelines with an exemplary panel of experienced practitioners.

The objectives are to:

  • Provide an overview of Montessori Quality: Authentic Practice (MQ:AP) and introduce self-assessment and the Standards and Guidelines by linking them to the NQS, EYLF, and NESA self-assessment.
  • Introduce key capabilities for MQ:AP Guides.
  • Use case studies and personal experience to transform the guidelines into practical reality, so that you can use what you know and learn and embed it into existing practice at your education service.
  • Provide practical tools and frameworks to further develop your approach to authentic practice, and your “reflective development” strategies.
  • Give opportunities for feedback and reflection on the program.
  • Assist to develop supporting networks for MQ:AP guides.
