ESTA postgraduate certificate (PG Cert)
The ESTA PG Cert was launched in 2017 and represents a partnership and collaboration with the University of Chichester in the UK. This international course is at Masters Level (level 7) and is delivered 100% online, with the option of a weeks residential study at the University of Chichester campus. The course is delivered in English.
The next cohort will begin in January 2021. All students are supported throughout the course by a subject specific mentor.
This course gives you the opportunity to take a look at your own teaching technique and specific strategies and techniques you use, in addition to standing back and developing a broader perspective on teaching and learning and music education in general. The course offers a well structured programme with mentors who are all highly experienced teachers, and a blend of face-to-face and online learning that results in a level 7 qualification from a well regarded higher education institution. Being a student on this course is all about developing as a reflective practitioner; someone who is willing to stand back and look at what they are doing, and contemplate changing aspects if they need to. The awarded PG Cert is a unique qualification for the teaching profession.
