The Certificate for Music Educators - CME


In partnership with Trinity College and the Musicians Union


CME is a new qualification for all music educators that Wren Music is piloting in Devon, in partnership with the Devon Music Education Hub (DMEH).


The Trinity Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators (Trinity CME) is designed for music educators who work with children and young people. It is supported by a flexible programme of learning, validated by Trinity College, London and supported by Devon, Plymouth and Torbay South West Music Education Hubs.


Wren Music has been endorsed as a centre for the South West by Trinity and a first intake of students was enrolled in September 2016, with the aim of growing student numbers subsequently. We are designing a course to meet the Trinity requirements and also to give students the benefit of Wren Music’s long experience in the music education sector.


The qualification is accredited by Trinity College which has approved Wren as a certified provider of the training. And Paul Wilson, Wren’s Music Director has been closely involved in the process from the outset – from sitting on the original Working Party for the National Plan, to writing the folk elements of the course.
