MMM is always keen to increase the number of its teachers, and are constantly seeking new recruits – producing more classes and getting more people dancing with MMM! This year we have decided to make some changes to update and modernise our training programme for new teachers. We hope these changes will make the initial hurdle easier for those who may have been thinking of training but have not quite found the time, the energy or the courage to take the first step towards becoming a teacher. While simplifying in some areas, we are fully aware of the need to retain our high standards and the comprehensive scope of our course, thus enabling newly qualified candidates to start teaching immediately with confidence.
This year at Summer School we will pilot a new format for the Basic Teacher Training Certificate. Once we have analysed the results of the new format, everyone will be informed and those countries outside the UK, which run their own teacher training courses, will be able to benefit from the pilot course. So we are all looking forward to Chichester this summer and to our first candidates on the new programme!
