CPD with Melody Bear - Teacher Training Modules

As part of our on-going commitment to maintain and improve the standards of the Melody Movement programme we are currently in the process of submitting an application to the CDET (Council of Dance Education and Training) to receive their endorsement for our teacher training modules as CPD for our licensed teachers.  The CDET is a prestigious arts organisation which independently assesses educational resources and to be affiliated to this organisation will be a noteworthy achievement for Melody Bear.

Whereas our current Teacher Training Certificate has been offered to teachers as a complete programme, we now have separate short modules. These are available to our licensed Melody Movement teachers wishing to refresh and improve their teaching skills.  The training modules are based on distant-learning tasks whilst teaching your regular Melody Bear classes - ideal for the busy teacher looking to expand her skills and knowledge.

We are currently looking for a pilot group of Melody Movement teachers to complete one or more of the modules below.  Our pilot group will receive 10% discount on the full price.  To register as a pilot group member, call us on 01480 469711 to receive a registration form or click on the registration form below.
