During your Accreditation Gateway training, we will upgrade you to the Accreditation Gateway Circle community. Here you will be able to share insights and ask questions along with your personal cohort members and others who have taken the course recently. The group is moderated by Vocal Process teachers, so you can be sure of a good community experience.

You will also continue your membership of Gillyanne’s Singing and the Actor FaceBook group, with numerous learning resources for you to access, plus amazing practical tips shared by the group members.

This hybrid training course includes self-guided elements and live online classes led by Dr Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher. Join the 2-day live session and study the self-guided elements at your own pace.

During the classes we will watch and discuss videos of your own lessons and rehearsals. For this training course we recommend that you have at least 3 years’ experience as a singing teacher, vocal coach or choir leader.

The Accreditation Gateway training requires a time commitment from you for:

  • Self-guided video learning and reflection to be completed before the live events
  • Lesson knowledge integration
  • Live online training sessions
  • Preparation of your own lesson or rehearsal video
  • A live element with Dr Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher.

Video learning: The training includes a total of 6 hours of video footage for self-guided learning. This footage is broken up into small chunks for easy learning with subtitles and transcripts. There are study reflection questions after each topic, so factor in time for these too.

Lesson Integration: It is important for you to integrate the knowledge and skills acquired into your everyday singing studio lessons or choir rehearsals. You should allow time to prepare your lesson plans and integrate your new knowledge into live lessons with students where appropriate. Not all methods and techniques will be suitable for every student.

Live online training sessions:

You will also need to attend in person the two live online training sessions with Gillyanne and Jeremy. We set dates and times to suit each cohort depending on continent and timezone.

Lesson or rehearsal video: For the in-person part of the Accreditation Gateway training you should submit a 10-15 minute video of your own teaching, coaching or a choral rehearsal. We will expect you to give background information about the person or group you are working with using the Vocal Process client profiling template, including any challenges you experience as a teacher.

Depending on your teaching space and technical experience in recording, you may need time to practice “pressing the buttons” and checking the results before submitting a live lesson video to us.

Just as passing an exam doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a good singer, standardised teaching tests don’t demonstrate your abilities as a teacher. This is because each teacher works in a different context.

The Accreditation Gateway training is a unique way of learning that breaks down the barriers between you and the success of your teaching. With no formal tests at the end, this process gives you an opportunity for self-reflection both during and after the course. When training, you begin to see the different situations in which you can apply what you have been learning.

You will also be working with us live for two units of the course, so you will be able to ask questions as you go along. It’s a fantastic way to reflect on your understanding, and a great confidence booster.

You can also access The Circle community and ask questions like “What did I do? Why did it work then but not later?”

At the end of your training, you simply fill in your online feedback form to confirm the benefits you’ve gained from the course. This will earn you an additional 10 CPD points and your Gateway Certificate.
