Professional development for teachers

Our comprehensive CPD programme provides a range of training opportunities for specialist and non-specialist practitioners within a wide range of settings. Empowering classroom teachers to deliver an engaging and challenging music curriculum and to utilise the power of music to develop children’s confidence, communication and listening skills is at the heart of our CPD programme.

Most of the courses are free of charge to Oldham schools who contribute via the Devolved Music Grant (DMG).

All course-leaders have high levels of expertise within their area and a delegate pack will be provided with all the resources utilised during the course.
