Teaching the RSL Level 2 Certificate Music Practitioners Course
Now approved by the DfE for inclusion in 2019 league tables, this course will ensure that delegates understand the specification, assessment criteria and opportunities for practical, real-world student focused learning offered by the qualification. We will also look at how Musical Futures resources can be used to enhance learning and make the course accessible for all students.
Designed around the ethos and pedagogies of Musical Futures as a basis for developing excellence in all arts subjects, we will look at examples of how this has been applied successfully to art and drama lessons.
Throughout the day we will explore how to develop a curriculum that places practical, immersive learning experiences at the heart of the arts subjects and immerses students in real world learning, whilst fulfilling whole school requirements. In addition, there will be sessions on data, funding and assessment along with exploring effective leadership in the current challenging educational environment.
