About STAT - the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique
In 1958 the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) was founded in the UK by teachers who had been trained personally by FM Alexander.
STAT’s first aim is to ensure the highest standards of teacher training and professional practice.
Teaching members of STAT:
- Are registered (MSTAT) to teach the Technique after completing an approved three-year training course and having reached a standard approved by STAT moderators.
- Are required to adhere to the Society’s published Code of Professional Conduct and Competence, and are covered by professional indemnity insurance.
There are currently over 2500 teaching members of STAT and its Affiliated Societies world-wide. Graduates of STAT training courses are assessed by a system of external moderation. STAT also runs a programme of Continuing Professional Development for its teaching members.
STAT supports many ventures related to the Technique and to deepening understanding of how and why it works. Its Scientific Research Committee liaises with and supports approved medical trials involving the Technique and its application in different situations. STAT also promotes awareness of the Technique by running stands at exhibitions such as The Back Pain show and Nursing in Practice; lobbies parliamentary committees and discussion groups for a less fragmented and more holistic approach to public health; and maintains relationships with journalists and the media worldwide.
Leah is proud to be a teaching member of STAT and to meet its high standards.
