Candidates Info

Once you have enrolled on the Level 2 course, you will be sent Master Tsao's DVD of the Tai Chi Bang: Eight Immortals Flute. This will provide you with the study material for the practical work, but termly practical days are also available, which you will be able to take advantage of.

On enrolment for this course you will be provided with information regarding access to the associated online study guides and assignments.


So what will I study for the Level 2 apt course?

The theory element of this course will provide you with a background to the philosophy of Tai Chi, the movements of Tai Chi Bang, modifications to enable you to teach Tai Chi Bang to a wide range of people and an understanding of the health & safety issues that an instructor should be aware of.

There are 2 written assignments for this course and they are an integral part of your assessement. Written assignments are emailed to the assigned tutor for each unit. The rest of the assessment is via a final practical assessment which can be either a face-to-face session with the assessor and internal verifier for this course, or by a video recording of your practice.

 How long does the course take to complete?

Our aim is to provide for flexible learning so how long it takes is up to you. We expect everyone to complete the  course within a year but the average is about 6 months - mainly due to having to learn this new Tai Chi Routine.

The theory to the course - online learning - will not take too many hours of study, but again this will depend on your starting point.

The practical work will take a while to learn, which is why we suggest a period of about 6 months of study. Everyone is different, so some will learn the movements quite quickly while others, who can't practise on a regular basis, will take longer. 

The main thing to remember is that you can work at your own pace and assignments can be written and sent to your tutor when you are ready.



Here you can see a clip of the practical work that you will be doing, although some of the movements will be slowed down. The Level 2 course does not cover the optional Tai Chi martial art practical work.
