Our senior students helping in our Melody Bear classes have the opportunity to complete
the MMEL Student Assistant Development Programme (SADP).
This is a training programme and award scheme designed to guide, support and recognise
senior students who help in Melody Movement Early Learning dance classes. In addition
to teaching students the principles of class assisting, it develops students’ generic
skills such as leadership, organisation, planning and communications. There are
three stages within the SADP with students’ skills progressing through each stage.
The recommended minimum ages are listed below. There is no upper age limit.
Stage 1: Bronze Award - school year 8
Stage 2: Silver Award - school year 9
Stage 3: Gold Award - school year 10
Each stage includes three units; tutorials, practical sessions and tasks. Students
complete each stage before progressing to the next.
The school also offer the MMEL Associate training programme to student teachers.
