As a music education professional, could your expertise and passion help music practitioners shape their career and personal development?

Launched in 2013, Trinity College London’s Certificate for Music Educators (CME) is a professional music teaching qualification which provides personalised mentoring and CPD to practitioners working across a variety of educational settings, enhancing their musical/pedagogical knowledge and self-reflection skills.

The learners’ progress through the course is documented in a portfolio of evidence, demonstrating how they have put what they have learnt into practice within their own teaching, and how they have reflected upon this afterwards.

The CME is quality assured by a small team of External Quality Assurers (EQAs) whose role is to ensure standards are rigorously and consistently applied, and whose expert feedback plays a role in shaping the teacher’s learning and development. EQAs also gain the opportunity to witness how a long-term and personalised CPD programme can have a positive impact on practitioners’ everyday work.

Trinity College looks for experienced music education professionals who are able to travel around the UK for a minimum of five days a year, including two days during the peak period between May and July. All our EQAs are independent, freelance, self-employed individuals.

By working as an EQA, you’ll be helping to professionalise music teaching in the UK, working as part of a small team within a world-leading learning and assessment organisation. The experience you gain will be rewarding both personally and professionally.


If you are interested in applying please download the CME External Quality Assurer Role Description and complete the online application form.

Please note that we are not able to accept applications by post, and we do not accept CVs.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview on 16 February 2018. Should your interview be successful you must be available to attend an initial training course on 23 March 2018.
