Why become a Conductor?
A conductor is the recognised professional term for someone who has trained in the field of Conductive Education. Conductor training focuses on teaching children and adults with neurological conditions how to learn and develop the skills the rest of us take for granted. For some it may be learning to sit, stand, eat and drink whilst for others it may be regaining the use of their arm following a stroke, developing their speech, walking, balance or skills needed to be more active in their daily lives.
In order to do this a conductor will gain specialist knowledge and understanding of how people learn, the impact of their condition and how to teach them in a way which promotes their own learning. Conductors learn about psychology, teaching, group work, anatomy and physiology and motor learning. It is a unique combination of skills all focussed in the area of neurological conditions. It is a growing profession and one which will give you the skills needed to make a difference to the lives of the people you work with.
The BA Hons course in Conductive Education is unique in that it merges theory and practice on a weekly basis. The course is designed to give you all the skills you need to become a qualified conductor and work confidently with children and/or adults with neurological conditions. Throughout the three years of the course you will work alongside experienced conductors and prepare yourself for a future career in this field.
Conductive Education (CE) originated in Hungary at the Pető Institute, however there are centres all over the world employing qualified conductors.
There are two different routes to training as a conductor. The Multidisciplinary route for existing professionals holding a first degree and the BA Hons for those who are school leavers or those who wish to study for an under-graduate degree that leads to a professional qualification.
