Music Qualifications and Training in Schools

Location: Italy

In 2018, the Comitato Nazionale per l’Apprendimento Pratico della Musica per tutti gli studenti (National Committee for Practical Learning of Music for all students - CNAPM), within the Italian Ministry of Education, signed an MOU with Trinity to undertake a research study into the impact of Trinity’s assessment materials and exams on the music teaching and learning in schools from all phases across Italy.

Nearly 100 schools and 130 teachers are involved with a large-scale project including:

  • Curriculum design which enables the assessment of the musical skills of the students through Trinity’s music assessment portfolio and publications 
  • Training and supporting teachers through CPD (Continuing Professional Development) to enable curriculum development  
  • Creation of an international community of teachers who share the best practices of learning and teaching music

Initial findings from the project report: 

  • Greater innovation in the design of music curricula
  • Better motivation and continuation from students, working towards the acquisition of qualifications which carry currency against the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) 
  • Increased motivation for teachers
