This unique programme develops practitioners who are knowledgeable about and competent in applying the Montessori philosophy to elder care. All students who earn the Level 6 Special Purpose Award will also qualify for the Association Montessori Internationale Practitioner Certificate in Montessori for Dementia and Ageing.
