Pilates professional development courses

Continuing professional development, or CPD as it is more widely known, is an important feature of profession, but is especially important for Pilates teachers and instructors. Pilates teachers need to ensure that their knowledge and skills are continually sharp and up to date.

The very nature of Pilates and the many therapeutic benefits that it offers means that a wide-range of mixed ability participants are attracted to Pilates classes and sessions, many of whom have special and complex needs. Pilates teachers need a rich and diverse knowledge of how to adapt their sessions safely and effectively to meet these needs, which is why regular and ongoing CPD is so important.

We have an expert team of Pilates educators that are at the forefront of the industry and what knowledge and skills Pilates professionals need to have to ensure that they can deliver the best and most inclusive Pilates classes and sessions. Our team work tirelessly to ensure that we have a range of ‘fit for purpose’ CPD opportunities for Pilates professionals, and most of these are featured on this page.

Types of Pilates CPD courses

Where our Pilates provision is concerned, we're committed to continuous development and improvement, creating new and exciting programmes all the time to help our students increase the knowledge, skills and influence within the sector.

Online on-demandLive Virtual Attended in-person

Online on-demand

Our online and on-demand Pilates CPD courses offer the greatest flexibility for remote learning. With these courses, students undertake online theory and practical learning that is embedded into a seamless and easy to follow online course.

The course content will normally include eLearning, online presentations, and a series of practical workshops presented by one of our Master Pilates Teachers. There are usually a range of online knowledge assessments designed to assess your learning as you progress, as well as skills-based assessments to ensure that you are also developing the practical awareness and application of what has been taught.

Most of these courses can be completed on any web-based device, although for the best user experience, we recommend using a tablet or laptop. It is however possible to complete all your course content on a mobile phone.

There’s no substitute for a face-to-face meeting which is why our attended in-person Pilates CPD courses give us the greatest satisfaction. We love to meet our students in-person on course; while we understand this isn’t always possible, it’s certainly where we do our best work.

With our attended courses, you’ll be required to attend one of our regional training venues across the UK for the duration of the programme. Our Pilates CPD courses do tend to be a little shorter than our full Pilates teacher training courses, but attendance requirements do vary from course-to-course.

Most of the venues we use for our in-person Pilates programmes are premium health clubs, leisure facilities or Pilates studios, and many of these facilities actively recruit our graduates also via CV Connect.
