Established in 1993, the Interactive Teaching Method Association (ITM) is an international network of teachers, students, and friends of the Alexander Technique who share a distinctive approach to personal development through the work of F M Alexander.
The Association's aims are to:
- promote the work of F.M. Alexander by means of the Interactive Teaching Method
- act as a point of contact between ITM teachers and the public
- maintain standards of teaching and professional conduct
- provide support and continuing professional development for teachers
ITM teachers offer individual and group classes, as well as residential and non-residential workshops.
All ITM teachers must have completed an approved teacher training programme and passed the practical and written examinations. They must also undertake continuing professional development training and are reassessed periodically.
Teachers are required to observe a Code of Conduct and hold professional indemnity insurance.
The Association is presently playing an active role in government initiated discussions concerned with self-regulation of the Alexander Technique teaching profession.
