Continuing Education

The Continuing Education Centre of EAMT organises courses in the subjects taught at the Academy. The main target groups of continuing education include teachers at music schools, general education schools and pre-school child care institutions, the teaching staff of musical vocational education institutions and institutions of applied higher education, active performing artists and cultural workers in Estonia, academic staff members of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. Professional musicians, music teachers and active performing artists are offered the latest information through refresher courses and master-classes in cooperation with several other universities in Estonia and Europe. In addition, as flexible study formats, the Open Academy and independent refresher training provide all members of society with suitable opportunities for participation in the lifelong learning process.

Active participation in the Estonian Network for University Continuing Education is an important element of development work in the Continuing Education Centre. Within the framework of the project “High-quality and Diverse Continuing Education in Cooperation between Universities”, Estonian public universities have joined their forces to develop a quality assessment system for continuing education, including a self-assessment model based on the EFQM Excellence Model. The Continuing Education Centre of EAMT participated in the piloting of the system.
