CPD Opportunities

Following are current CPD offers by Nottingham Music Hub and partners:

Music Network Meetings

The Music Network sessions are held once a term in collaboration with the Nottingham Schools Trust. Meetings focus on a range of topics and the agenda is shared with participants beforehand.

These sessions are a great opportunity for teachers to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and topics in music education in the country.

We came away so excited with all the ideas that we have learned and want to share them with the staff. For us, the whole meeting was presented at a level for everyone to take away something.

Certificate for Music Educators

The Certificate for Music Educators (CME) is an accredited qualification, validated by Trinity College London, and run by the combined Music Education Hubs for the East Midlands (MEHEM)

The MEHEM CME programme was started in 2013 as an in-service route for music educators without prior teacher training to help them gain the required skills to ensure that children in schools have high quality learning experiences.

Nottingham Music Hub, as part of MEHEM, has gone one step further and uses the CME qualification as the foundation for a one-year full time trainee programme. This programme is especially helpful for people just starting their careers. The trainees work in schools alongside experienced staff and complete their certification while gaining teaching experience. The CME has brought the music hubs in the East Midlands together and created a platform for great partnerships and exciting music making opportunities.

For more information on what the course includes, costs and how to make a booking, please visit the MEHEM website.

This is an excellent centre and a model for what the CME can achieve and how learners can be supported in their professional development. Assessment systems are rigorous but supportive, and the professional development materials and sessions are of a very high quality

Trinity College, London

MEHEM has been running the CME course since 2013. It is the largest Trinity CME centre, with the highest number of successful candidate certifications in the country

*(as of April 2019)
