The South Australia Department for Education’s Instrumental Music team and Charanga are offering a Professional Learning Program to all classroom teachers who want teaching and learning in schools to be fun, relevant and inspiring. No prior experience or knowledge of music teaching is required.

The Program will be led by experts Madeleine Casson (Education Director, Charanga), and Amelia Monaghan (Instrumental Music Leader – School Program Development)

To find out more, we invite principals and teachers to a free Introductory Information Session on Tuesday 26 November 2019, 16:00–17:30 at EDC, Hindmarsh.

To book your place, please email education.musicprograms@sa.gov.au with your name, school and role by 12:00pm on Friday 8 November.

The Program

Having attended the introductory session, teachers will be asked to commit, as part of an MoU, to two full days of training at EDC on 20 January and 17July 2020, with set tasks to complete in-between.

Teachers who complete the Program will receive certification in line with the Australian Professional Standards.

While all professional development costs will be covered, attendees will be responsible for their travel and accommodation.

We had a great Charanga workshop on Kangaroo Island last week and are already using it in our classrooms. The kids love Charanga and we’re having such fun with music!
