Qualification Authorising Body
The Diploma is awarded by the Association Montessori Internationale and does not form part of the Australian Qualifications Framework.
AMI is considered as the worldwide leader in Montessori education. Its certified training is acknowledged for its rigour and authenticity and the Diploma is internationally recognised. It qualifies the holder to work in a pre-existing 6-12 classroom or to start a new classroom. All Association Montessori Internationale Diplomas state the holder has “Studied the principles and practice of the Montessori method for children from 6-12 years of age” and has “passed the written and oral examinations”.
The Diploma does not automatically qualify the holder to teach. The state or country in which the Diploma-holder wishes to work may have other teaching requirements that must be fulfilled. In New South Wales, all teachers must be accredited to teach through the NSW Education Standards Authority.
