Administrative Structure of the Montessori Institute
The Montessori Institute is governed by a Board of Management elected by the Membership.
It is a private not-for-profit educational organisation and does not receive government funding. The Montessori Institute has offered external study courses in Australia since 1983.
Operations are delegated to, and largely authorised and implemented by, the National Director, Educational Director and Administrative Secretary.
All administrative and educational procedures, documents and policies are reviewed on a cyclical basis according to a five year Continuous Improvement Program.
The Academic Board has ultimate responsibility for the academic program, academic policies and course development. The Educational Director implements academic policies, course improvements and operation of educational programs.
The Course Advisory Committee is made up of external educational experts and industry representatives and advises the Academic Board and the National Director.
