NSW: Australian Kodály Certificate 2020

14 April 2020 @ 8:30 am - 19 April 2020 @ 4:30 pm

CANCELLED: Due to the uncertainty surrounding the trajectory of the COVID-19 virus in Australia, the Kodály NSW Committee has made the difficult decision to suspend our NSW AKC offering for 2020, with all smaller gatherings similarly under review.

We are actively seeking ways to enrich your practice this year via our online and social media platforms. Our PD gatherings and events are ready to be re-launched as soon as it is deemed appropriate to do so. Similarly, we are already planning for a magnificent AKC course offering in 2021.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kodály NSW will be running training towards the Australian Kodály Certificate (AKC) in 2020. We are pleased to announce the inaugural Margaret Smith AKC Scholarship which will provide financial assistance for up to 4 NSW music educators to pursue studies towards the Australian Kodály Certificate.
