Our School Direct Initial Teacher Training programme includes an optional music module, and this year everyone opted to participate in it. It’s a great way to build confidence in teaching music, which is essential for primary school teachers working in a school that doesn’t have a music specialist available.
This year, the module has consisted of four sessions with our Trust Music Lead, and our students have had the opportunity to develop lots of musical ideas through performing, composing and learning to play the steel pans. Here are some pictures of them in action in their final session last week:
We still have places available on our School Direct programme starting in September 2021 – you can read more about what we offer, and sign up to an open day to find out more, here.
