‘Teaching music musically’
Practically engaging in Music should be the main focus when teaching Music in schools. It is the language of the classroom.
Embarking on the SCITT course will prepare you to teach Music practically across the 11-16 age range.
The course draws upon the academic study of key music learning theories and strategies with a range of practical experiences. You will be placed in two of our alliance schools, with a dedicated subject mentor, working alongside experienced music teachers and will also be given the opportunity to observe lessons in other subjects.
We will work with you to develop your expertise and expand your musical skills as well as teaching you how to create motivating and engaging music lessons which will inspire and challenge our students.
Our course is very much tailored to suit each individual. It is personalised and is adapted to build on your personal strengths and provide the knowledge and experiences you need to develop into an outstanding teacher of Music.
You will be guided through the processes of planning and assessing your pupils’ progress, ensuring that your teaching meets the needs of every individual pupil.
