About this Event

Our free programme of training and resources

Join the Royal Opera House for part two (of two) of our virtual twilight CPD training exploring our Create and Sing Carmen scheme of work (KS1-KS3). Our specialist drama and music practitioners will delve deeper into the programme, focusing on developing drama and music facilitation skills and planning Create and Sing school projects.

Create and Sing is an innovative drama and singing programme supporting young people’s creative learning and giving voice to their creativity. Our nationally and freely available teacher training and resources engage schools in a creative process leading towards creating opera in the classroom.

Teachers are not required to have specialist music training as our free certified training and unique online resources help guide them through the programme every step of the way.

Create and Sing's Covid-19 adaptations

Create and Sing has adapted this year, with training predominantly taking place through virtual twilight sessions (except where physical training is possible) in the spring term and we encourage schools to plan to begin their projects in the summer or beyond.

For schools facing curriculum time pressures, we are recommending our Explorer (5-week lesson plan) schemes of work, with an emphasis on the quality and not quantity of creative work being produced.

Virtual CPD training

Our creative and interactive training sessions invite teachers to collaborate and explore the Create and Sing programme together. There is an emphasis on play, discovery and participation and we therefore ask attendees to keep their cameras on and bring a "give it a go" attitude.

Please note this is a 2 part training course and attendees need to register for both parts separately on Eventbrite.

To ensure the required number of attendees we ask all teachers to sign up with a deputy who will step in for you, should you not be able to attend. Both you and your deputy may attend, just let us know if this is likely to be the case.

Details about the digital platforms that will be used in the session will be emailed to attendees in advance, along with some familiarization information to help guide you through using them. If you have any special accessibility requirements please get in touch via

Programme includes:

  • Certified teacher training for KS1, KS2 and KS3 teachers across the U.K.
  • Digital resources that are free to access via the ROH Learning Platform, giving teachers the option of two-lesson (Taster), five-lesson (Explorer) and ten-lesson (Immersive) schemes of work.
  • Introductory films that inspire and entertain students, reinforcing the activities and concepts they encounter in the lessons.
  • Backing tracks with and without vocal lines for all the selected opera excerpts, to assist with learning and performing.
  • Support in helping children achieve the KS1, KS2 and KS3 National Curriculum attainment targets for Music and links to the wider curriculum.
