Discovering Repertoire ?New Introductory Courses

Duration per level: 1 day
CPD Hours per level: 8
Fee per level: R885 members / R1,415 non-members

Following the launch earlier this year of CPD courses to support Discovering Repertoire (DR) it has become clear from the feedback that the structure and the content for the courses did not fully meet the expectations of teachers. We have listened to the feedback and have, as a result, set up a Discovering Repertoire review panel. The panel has now reviewed all the feedback from teachers, tutors and members and an action plan has been agreed.

The revised introductory course will consist of a full day (6 hours) per level including the variations and both female and male work, i.e.

  • Comprehensive Introduction to Level 2 (1 Day)

  • Comprehensive Introduction to Level 3 (1 Day)

  • Comprehensive Introduction to Level 4 (1 Day)
