Teachers and music educators

Training and qualifications

The Music Hub runs a regular programme of CPD for teachers in schools, instrumental teachers and those that work in the informal sector.

Of particular interest is the ‘Certificate for Music Educators’ which is a QCF Level 4 qualification accredited by Trinity College London and run by  Community Learning MK Music Faculty. With course materials especially written by Gary Spruce of the Open University, this modular course provides learners with the resources to develop teaching skills within their own individual context.

For further details of this and other courses visit Music Faculty - Community Learning MK.

Working in partnership with the MK Music Hub, instrumental teachers can apply to become a ‘Professional Partner’ (DOCX, 145KB). Applying to become a partner is a commitment on the part of the teacher to develop themselves as a teacher and to offer high-quality teaching experiences for anyone they teach. 

All ‘Professional Partners’ should have a current DBS and Public Liability insurance as parents and schools may require this as a condition of engaging them for any work.

Benefits include low-cost access to CPD and other professional development, networking opportunities, advertising on the Music Hub website and being a part of the local music community.
