ABOUT THIS COURSE
This course will explore how you can turn the significant challenges of teaching Music at KS3 into an opportunity for positive change. The course explores planning a vibrant and stimulating programme which develops students’ skills, knowledge and attainment, together with the essentials students need to access the higher grades at GCSE.
Emphasis will be on practical musical experiences that give students time to learn the relevant knowledge and skills, and allows for meaningful assessment. It will cover choosing the right topics and listening material, and planning for sequences of learning that build key concepts and skills.
