Bach Foundation Teachers Programme L2

BFTP2 is a course for existing Level 1 trainers who want to teach Bach Centre-approved Level 2 courses. It runs approximately every two years.

The next course in 2024 will be a BFTP2 DLP (Distance Learning Programme) course, taught online. The initial four group sessions will run on the 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th November 2024, 13:30pm -17:00 UTC. Deadline for applications is 1st October 2024. 

BFTP2 aims to explore how to design and facilitate a Level 2 course and to encourage your personal and professional development as a Bach teacher.

By the time you complete the initial stages you will be in a position to create your own Level 2 course which you will send to the BFTP2 trainer for approval.

The course is taught in English by Lynn Macwhinnie BFRP. The course fee of £900 covers training, mentoring and the subsequent approval process. You will pay this to the trainer after your application has been accepted. You do not need to pay anything until you are offered a place on the course.

Six weeks before the course begins, you will be given preparation work to complete. This will include access to the Bach Centre L2 Distance Learning Programme, which you will need to complete as revision of Level 2 material, before the BFTP2 starts.

BFTP2 can also be taught in other countries and languages, with an interpreter when necessary. Contact us if you have a group of Level 1 trainers who are interested in that possibility.

Step 1: check that you are eligible for BFTP2

In our course approval criteria for Level 2 we specify that new Level 2 teachers should already have:

  • Four years’ experience of using the remedies in line with the Code of Practice
  • Two years’ experience of helping other people select remedies
  • Experience of teaching at least five Bach Centre-approved Level 1 courses

If you don’t have that level of experience now, please do not apply. 

BFTP2 is designed principally for Level 1 teachers who are licensed direct by the Bach Centre and/or for people who don’t have ready access to alternative teacher training in their own countries.

If your Level 1 licence comes from a third-party course provider, and/or you are affiliated to a provider of Bach Centre-approved courses that offers teacher training, contact that organisation first before you consider applying here.

And if you haven’t done so already, check what teacher training is already available in your country before going any further:

Step 2: send us an application form

Entry to BFTP2 is via an application form. Before deciding whether to offer you a place on a future event we will assess your eligibility for the course, your potential as a Level 2 trainer, how successful you have been at building good relationships with students and other trainers, whether more Level 2 trainers are needed in your area, and the overall best interests of education provision in your area.

We will normally acknowledge receipt of the form within ten days and will send you our decision within a month. If you don’t hear back from us within those time frames, contact us.
