Training for Tutors 2024
An exciting new offering is on the program for Summer Events 2024: a Training for Tutors course!
This is for teachers who want to be prepared to tutor candidates locally or at TAC. The Education & Training committee of the RSCDS has been working on an updated method of delivering this and we are fortunate that Graham Donald and Ellie Briscoe have agreed to lead the training.
The course includes online video conferences as well as in-person sessions. There will be two 3 hour videoconferences approximately 6 to 8 weeks in advance of the 6 hours of in-person practical tutoring which will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon (July 29, 30 and August 1). We need at least 8 participants to run the course so please consider it.
The cost will be $100 for those attending Summer School and $150 for those coming just to this course.
The applicant must:
i) Be an RSCDS-qualified teacher with a wide range of experience of teaching all levels
ii) Have good assessment skills and organizational ability
iii) Have good communication and inter-personal skills
iv) Be able to show continuing development in his/her own teaching skills since certification
In addition, at least some of the following is desirable:
a) Experience of presenting teams for festivals or demonstrations
b) Experience of teaching at Schools, weekend courses or day courses
c) Knowledge of music
d) Some experience of coaching or delivering training, not necessarily in dancing.
