Teacher Training

Teacher Training

We offer free workshops for student teachers, primary school teachers and Religious Education co-ordinators and secondary school teachers of Religious Education. These can be delivered in one of our Buddhist centres or in your school or Professional Development Centre.

We introduce and develop your understanding of the principles, practices and customs of Buddhism, and specifically the Nichiren school practised by Soka Gakkai International. The interactive workshops include creative classroom teaching ideas and in-depth subject knowledge training.

  • A big thank you for organising our very friendly and interesting visit with our Year 8 students at London Ikeda Peace Centre. Everyone enjoyed the experience. My colleagues definitely think as I do that we would like to bring all our students next year. Everyone was so relaxed and engaged.

  • Thank you for welcoming Year 5 to Taplow Court and for your excellent input during an inspiring day. The students and staff really appreciated the information that you made available on Buddhism, and the history of the site through the exhibition, discussions with you both and through a tour of the house and the Anglo-Saxon burial mound in the grounds. The demonstration of faith was wonderful. I know that Year 5 will want to come back in the future.
