The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance has announced the launch of a new specialist teacher training course.
Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) has been specifically written with contemporary music education as the subject focus. It will be delivered by professional educators and experienced practitioners at The Institute’s London campus, leading to a Level 4 Award, the first step towards gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Director of The Institute, Pete Whittard, said:
'Teaching music is a significant source of revenue for practitioners as well as a means to remain engaged with the next generation of musicians. However, it is essential that those who wish to teach acquire the necessary qualifications and, for this reason, we have decided to develop this course.
‘Engaging with The Institute’s PTLLS course will be a huge advantage for those who wish to develop a career in teaching on either a full-time or a part-time basis. The course offers an opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the teacher’s role through a variety of approaches to teaching and learning and covers such areas as planning learning sessions and delivering specialist ensemble classes.'
