Sequencing, teaching skills & enhancing self-practice CPD

This practical course is set to get your creative juices flowing, offer inspiration, save you time and take your teaching skills to the next level. And as you only really teach from your own experience, we will also explore how you can enhance or re-ignite your self-practice.

This course will be student led …. You can submit lesson plans ahead of the course for Clare to review and feedback on, you can request a particular theme or class you’d like us to plan together during the course, the group can choose any theme and Clare will create a lesson plan on the spot and talk through her thinking process, and you can bring any questions with you related to any aspect of teaching skills, sequencing and self-practice. For anyone who records classes, we can discuss theming and sequencing for short / recorded classes too!
