Camphill Values in Practice training course

1st March 2022

Camphill in Scotland are offering a new Camphill Values in Practice (CViP) course, beginning in March 2022.  The revised CViP course replaces the original course, which ceased to run due to Covid 19 restrictions.

The new CViP course, beginning in March 2022, consists of either 10 full days or a number of half days, which will be spread over 2 ½ years.  Whilst it is hoped that most content will be delivered in face to face sessions, there will also be the possibility to use online facilities and recorded lectures.

Course aims

The aim is to explore Camphill ethos, values and philosophy in order to inspire and develop a practice based on the conviction of the spiritual integrity and dignity of each human being whilst supporting each individual to develop to their full potential and lead a meaningful life.

There will be 10 modules:

  1. History, Ethos and Values of Camphill and a general introduction into the structure and content of the Course
  2. 3 and 4 foldness (holistic understanding of the human being)
  3. Life Processes and Senses
  4. Therapeutic Environment
  5. Life Phases
  6. Developmental disabilities
  7. Mental Health
  8. Celebrating Festivals
  9. Personal/professional development
  10. Community and team work

All topics will contain elements of relevant theories, practical application and exploration of their spiritual dimension.


Participants are required to be living, working or volunteering in a Camphill community in Scotland.

Each participating community will support the students’ learning by offering mentors and regular tutorial sessions to reflect on and deepen the understanding of presented content, and to consider implications for daily practice considering the specific needs in each community.

The Course is open to all who want to carry the Camphill way of working with people with additional support needs into the future.

Participating Communities will be asked to make a small financial contribution per student.

Further information regarding specific module content, planned timings of teaching sessions and financial implications will be available.
