Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is offering free places on a pilot programme for music educators in July. Two pathway strands are available - Creative Education Practice (CEP), and Instrumental and Vocal Teaching (IVT).
The pilot will help to inform the final preparations for validation for two new qualifications, the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Music Teaching and Learning. The Certificate/Diploma is a flexible, vocational training opportunity for established music educators who have previous experience in the sector. This unique learning opportunity is offered alongside the wider Trinity Laban professional development programme for music educators, currently including a Community Music Leadership training programme offered in partnership with Squeaky Gate and Lewisham Music Service.
Annie Sheen, Trinity Laban's Learning and Participation (Music) Project Manager, said:
"It is important that these qualifications are tailored to the genuine professional needs of practitioners working in different music education settings. In further developing our programme offering, we are committed to consulting with a range of practitioners and employers in the music education sector, ensuring that our learning opportunities remain vocationally innovative as well as at the forefront of developments in music education research.
The programme offers two pathway strands; Creative Education Practice (CEP) on Saturday 20 July and Instrumental and Vocal Teaching (IVT) on Sunday 21 July. Both days will run from 10.00h-18.30h, and lunch will be provided.
You may be a private instrumental or vocal teacher, a music technology tutor, a music leader specialising in special needs or disabilities or a practitioner working with early years or with older people. Whatever your specialism we are keen to hear from you. To secure a place please email [email protected]
