It’s finally all over, 3 full on days. Have to say I’m not used to full days from 9-5, my schedule is usually all over the place with breaks in between!
Anyway, we did our presentations in the morning with our third tracks. I have to say it was hard to learn the timing on this one at the end. You do a stretch for 3 sets of 8 counts on one side, and then 5 sets of 8 on the other side. It’s just all over the place! You just have to kinda go randomly with this one and know the music well enough to know when the end is coming.
So not only did I have to learn and present this track, but then I still had to go over my first track to present it for our baby practice launch in the afternoon. We drew up a table of who was presenting, who was on stage, who was wearing mics and all the mic changeovers and stuck it on the wall behind the stage. Thank gawd we did this, cuz when the time came I had no way of remembering when I was gonna be on. All in all I think it was a pretty successful launch!
I’m also pleased to say that after the 3 days I passed!
The system has changed now from what it used to be. Where they used to give you your certificate you no longer get one. You get passed as a trainee instructor and you’re only a qualified instructor once you do your video. So the options are like this:
- Pass as a trainee
- Withheld for further development
- Resit for re-training
It will be interesting to see if this does actually encourage more people to end up actually doing their videos?
