A Summer of Progress: Early Childhood Training Opportunities

17 May 2022

Once again, Take Art is offering a limited number of bursaries to support a new cohort of students living in the South West who wish to study this acclaimed part-time, flexible, distance-learning course from Autumn 2022.

The Certificate for Music Educators: Early Childhood is run by the Centre for Research in Early Childhood (CREC). The course is a nationally recognised qualification validated by Trinity College London. All students are assigned a regional mentor, who works closely to support them throughout the course. Jane Parker, who is the Project Lead for The Soundwaves Network SW at Take Art, is the South West mentor.

Professor Chris Pascal (Director Centre Research for Early Childhood) and Gary Spruce (Trinity College London) both highly rate this ground-breaking course.

"Students are very well-supported by highly-skilled and very experienced staff who have national and international reputations in the field of early years education."

"The mentoring in this course is of the highest standard with excellent results. I believe all involved should be congratulated on creating and delivering an outstanding course which will make a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of music education for young children."

Thanks to our Youth Music funded SoundWaves Network SW programme, we can offer a limited number of £300 bursaries for our South West students, subject to references and successful interview. Please email jane@takeart.org by 5pm 1st July 2022 if you are interested in receiving a Take Art bursary or have any further questions.
