The module will promote a questioning and analytical approach to the issues that affect small-group coaching, learning and assessment. In particular, participants will consider the roles and responsibilities of being an ensemble coach; eg providing inspiration, providing musical direction, setting the curriculum, creating performance opportunities, dealing with interpersonal problems, providing feedback.

The module aims to raise awareness of the wider benefits of alternatives to the master-apprentice model, eg autonomous learning, deep learning and intrinsic motivation on the part of the students, professional satisfaction and development on the part of the teacher, fostering creative communities of practice at the institutional level.

The module is taught through a 2-day workshop, taking place on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1

May 2012 at our central London campus. This may be taken as a stand-alone short course or as part of one of the Institute of Education's masters programmes, such as MA Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education, and MA Music Education.


Entry requirements

A good first degree or equivalent. You should currently be employed in an appropriate educational or professional institution or similar setting, since the programme requires practical work within a teaching or training context, and elements of the assessment framework are also strongly related to your employment context.

English language proficiency

If your first language is not English, the Institute will need proof of your proficiency in English. We will accept the following evidence:

* IELTS - minimum overall score 7.0 (with score of no lower than 6.0 for writing and 6.5 for reading)
* TOEFL - 650 in paper based test; 280 in computerised test; 114 in internet based test
* Cambridge Certificate in the Proficiency of English - Grade A or B

If you have achieved a score of at least 5.5 in reading and writing modules of IELTS or 500 in TOEFL but are unable or do not wish to resit an English language test, you may enrol for our presessional course in English for Academic Purposes. Please see for more information.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 7
TOEFL paper-based test score : 650
TOEFL iBT® test: 114

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
