EduCareDo is a community based distance education course which has evolved in response to the needs of many people who are searching for new possibilities to develop their capacities in freedom on the path of self knowledge. This path is not only for self development but for the benefit of the world and fellow human beings.
It was established in 1982 by Erwin Berney, one of the founders of Parsifal College/ Sydney Rudolf Steiner College, and the work continues to be carried and co-ordinated by a community of volunteers.
All surplus from EduCareDo activities are reinvested back into community development projects across the world. The course fees are intentionally kept to a minimum to keep it accessible to anyone who wants to take up the study. The Berney Foundation offers two scholarships per annum upon application and approval.
EduCareDo Ltd is a not for profit company based in New South Wales Australia, established to offer opportunities for individual research and learning through the insight given in the science of anthroposophy.
Long Distance Study
EduCareDo has become well known around the world for the set of 26 lessons as a Foundation Year in Anthroposophy. The lessons are sent to students fortnightly over a year from the time of enrolment, and can be sent in for feedback at a pace that suits the student. Individuals can choose to send in summaries and examples of their study to receive a certificate of completion that many anthroposophical colleges accept as recognition for prior learning for Waldorf Teacher Training.
Students have access to tutor support and feedback, and may choose to form or join a study group. One initial fee covers all the lessons and tutor support, and a reading and material list helps the student individually find additional resources to complement and complete each lesson.
Over 2300 students have enrolled from 29 countries.
