The PTC qualification

The course leads to The Certificate of the Piano Teachers’ Course (Cert PTC) a recognised piano teaching qualification.

To attain the Cert PTC students are required to attend at least 75% of the course, participate in workshops, show evidence of self-reflection and the implementation of ideas from the course into their teaching and playing. They must complete all of their assignments to the required standard.

Certificates will be awarded with PASS, MERIT or DISTINCTION

Holders of the qualification will also receive a Cert PTC logo to use on their website, business cards and any relevant marketing materials.

The Piano Teachers’ Course Certificate of Attendance

Although it is highly recommended that students complete the written assignments for the benefit of their own teaching, and it is essential they do so to qualify for the Cert PTC, it is possible to attend the course and choose not to do the written assignments. Students who choose this option, and attend at least 75% of the course, are eligible for The Piano Teachers’ Course Certificate of Attendance.

Preparation for other Piano Teaching Diplomas

The comprehensive training offered by the Piano Teachers’ Course, with its breadth and depth of pedagogy, practical application and relevant written assignments, is excellent preparation for those taking other piano teaching diplomas.
