CPD and Training

Equipping teachers to teach music confidently

CPD & Training at our heart

CPD and training are central to all that Charanga does. We’re passionately committed to working with our teachers, schools and partners to ensure young people’s musical learning and experiences are wholly positive.

Dedicated CPD & Training Centre

To complement every music programme Charanga provides, subscribers will find a dedicated CPD & Training Centre on our platform. Visit the Centre to get the most from your subscription, and more.

Whether you’re a highly experienced teacher looking for fresh ideas and materials, a novice who is ‘terrified to teach music’, or somewhere in between, Charanga’s CPD & Training team has you covered.

After training, I felt motivated, inspired and confident in teaching music – a subject I’ve had no experience in at all! I can’t thank you enough. The materials are amazing, your enthusiasm infectious and I’m completely inspired.

Personalised support, expert guidance

Personalised support, guidance and professional development is offered to all Charanga teachers. A Charanga login gives you free access to:

  • Your own named contact with a background in music education, not sales
  • A vibrant community of teachers with designated spaces for exchanging ideas, asking questions and celebrating success
  • Topical, relevant and inspirational webinars – both live and recorded
  • The latest information about local and national workshops, conferences, network meetings and opportunities to meet other teachers

Since adopting Charanga, all teachers in our school feel empowered to teach their own music lessons. They love the choice of songs and curriculum, and can see that the children are learning meaningful skills. Staff no longer see music as a dispensable extra; it forms part of the regular curriculum.

The team

Every member of our handpicked CPD & Training team has a wealth of experience for you to call upon. With backgrounds in a range of settings – including special needs, primary and secondary education, music service and leadership – they are perfectly placed to help with everything to do with Charanga and all aspects of teaching and learning.

We’re here to ensure you get the most from Charanga and your music teaching.

A great confidence booster. The training session gave me plenty of food for thought, while encouraging me to bring my own ideas into my music teaching.
