Australian Kodály Certificate

The Australian Kodály Certificate (AKC) is awarded on completion of a professional development course. This course provides pre-service and current classroom and studio music teachers with the skills and knowledge to deliver a sequential, cumulative, developmental and aural-based music curriculum.

The AKC is the only Australian fully accredited and nationally recognised program of teacher training in the Kodály approach. It was established some 30 years ago and during this time over hundreds of teachers have successfully completed courses.

The certificate is normally completed over three years of part time study, and participants choose to complete a three year sequence in one area of specialisation: Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary or Colour Strings.

How to qualify

Educators qualify for this award by completing modules from the national curriculum with an approved course provider. It is the responsibility of the educator to apply for the certificate using the application form available on this website. Applicants will be advised in writing of the outcome of their application.
