CPD for school teachers

22 August updated - all 10 places have now been filled for this programme

Information about the programme 

We have committed part of our budget from Arts Council England to support vocal leadership development within Central Bedfordshire for those who have shown a particular interest in singing. 

We are covering the cost for 10 delegates and we would be delighted if you are able to be one of them. 

Your training costs and the accompanying resources will be covered by us, but you will need to make your own arrangements with your school should the training fall on a usual teaching day- hopefully this opportunity is one which can be tied into the school’s singing strategy development as well as your own CPD?

The course will be led by Ula Weber, a highly experienced, national trainer from Sing for Pleasure. This course if for school teachers and/or staff from music service providers, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills, develop their technique and explore a wide range of unaccompanied repertoire in a stimulating and supportive environment.

The programme includes:

  • technique sessions, including practical demonstrations of all the key aspects of conducting

  • workshop sessions, giving participants ample podium time to put into practice what they have learnt

  • repertoire sessions, showing teachers how to use SfP resources effectively in the classroom and beyond

  • discussion time, for troubleshooting and best practice sharing

  • certification, upon completion, as a Sing for Pleasure Singing Leader
