Fully-funded modules created for Scotland’s teachers

Published: 02/12/2020

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is opening applications to two new fully-funded modules specifically created for teachers, available from January 2021.

The modules, Exploring Responsibility of All through Active Music Making and Music Technology in Secondary Schools, will be taught by RCS lecturers, and offer GTCS registered teachers professional learning within Scotland’s national conservatoire.

These modules have a very limited number of places and it is recommended you submit your application as soon as possible to secure a funded place on the course.

Applications for both modules close on 11 December and you can find out more details on each course and how to apply below.

This credit-rated module is for primary teachers and will help you to develop practical music activities for your classroom. The aim of this course is to support teachers to integrate music-making into the wider curriculum and encourage young learners’ musical development.
