Aimed at those who want to develop a career in community music leadership, the course provides an opportunity for people who have a background in music and the arts to increase their knowledge, skills and experience in teaching and working in the community arts sector.
The course aims to provide a sound foundation in teaching and learning within a community arts setting, and explores a variety of subject areas including teaching methods, styles of learning, teaching repertoire and curriculum models.
Successful completion of the course leads to the Education and Training (EaT) City and Guilds 7303 teaching qualification for the lifelong learning sector (previously a PTLLS qualification: Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector).
The standard course fee is £597 but MUSIC:ED readers are offered a discount of £250, reducing the fee to £347.
Community Music has a 37-year history of training music leaders, and the organisation’s courses attract people from the music and arts industry in many different fields.
Previous students are now working in schools, colleges, prisons and arts and music organisations. Some have even gone on to set up their own companies.
A high percentage of graduates are now in employment, and over 95% of graduates said that their teaching confidence has increased as a result of completing the course.
