Qualify as a Conductor
To qualify as a conductor requires a three-year full time undergraduate course. Current students are completing their course with the University of Wolverhampton, however this cooperation will cease from 2014.
From September 2012 the BA Hons Conductive Education course will be run as a part of the Conductive College training portfolio through Birmingham City University. Students interested in enrolling on this course would need to apply through BCU following the UCAS procedures.
The course is based on acquiring the skills for a vocational profession. Qualified Conductor Status (QCS) is a worldwide recognised professional qualification and enables graduates to be employed as a conductor. In addition to QCS successful graduates will also receive an honours degree in Conductive Education.
Alongside formal teaching in the philosophy and practice of Conductive Education, students will also learn about neurological conditions such as; cerebral palsy, stroke, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. To enhance this learning all students complete weekly practice in conductive groups alongside the professional practitioners delivering the programmes (conductors). Students will gain a broad range of experience with children and adults and are able to specialise in one age group from the middle of the second year of study.
Entry requirements (UK students): 180 UCAS points from A level or equivalent qualifications; or Access to HE Diploma with 2 Merits at Level 3 including equivalent of GCSE English at grade C or above. Other qualifications or relevant experience will also be taken into account.
International students: due to recent changes at the UK Border Agency we were not able to take Non EU at the moment. However we are still trying to find a way to make this option available going forward.
All applicants will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check and will be invited for an interview. Acceptance onto the course will only be confirmed following the interview process.
