Course descriptions


Contemporary: Advanced 1 Syllabus

Building on the work at the Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate, this course aims to provide teachers with the skills they need to prepare students for examination at the Advanced 1 level. Attendees will experience syllabus exercises and explore the key elements and themes of the syllabus. Teachers will also investigate and further develop methods and tools for setting and guiding students through structured improvisation tasks. As students are required to pass the previous level exams before progressing through higher exams, we advise that teachers are familiar with both the Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate syllabi before attending the Advanced 1 course.
