A one-day practical workshop (worth 8 CPD hours) in which participating teachers will gain an understanding of how to teach the Grade 1 - 3 syllabi. Learning activities will focus on creating appropriate development exercises to encourage an accurate interpretation of the criteria used in the mark scheme of the examination.
