Online Practitioner Training
We have created video training modules for Boogie Mites Music Programmes. The online training courses are introduced and evaluated via zoom training sessions, with the training modules covered in-between, assisted by an online community support group.
These new online training courses are supported and co-promoted with National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA), first trialled with NDNA member settings in January, it has been well-received:
“I loved the course yesterday, thank you. Bright and cheerful with great ideas such a welcome break from all the ‘doom and gloom’ at the moment!” – Trainee from Trumacar Nursery & Primary School, Lancs
“I have found the resources provided to be excellent, giving lots of ideas on how to extend and expand activities. The course content is given weekly, giving you ample time to practice with children and become confident, before moving on to the next module. The songs and music are original and catchy, and I love the fact that I am helping the children to advance educationally in such a fun and enjoyable way!” – Trainee from Little Stars Nursery, Staffs
“This course has really given me the opportunity and tools to bring music back into the classroom with purpose. Learning through music now has a completely different meaning for me” – Trainee from St Pauls Pre-School, West Sussex
