THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely conference will examine the future for music education in England.
Delegates will discuss priorities for Music Education Hubs going forward following the confirmation of their continued government funding until 2020 - assessing how effectively they have coordinated the multiple elements of music education since their introduction in 2012, issues affecting their financial sustainability going forward, and ways in which alternative models can be used to improve provision - in addition to highlighting examples of best practice in their implementation.
In the context of music not being an EBacc subject and an increase in teaching by non-specialist staff, delegates will also consider latest thinking on the new Ofsted inspection regime and what can be done to maintain standards and ensure the delivery of a well-rounded music education at primary and secondary level, how pupil uptake can be increased, and ways in which teacher workload can be managed.
Further sessions assess how well existing pathways through music education are serving the needs of today’s students, steps that can be taken to increase the involvement of the music industry in education and how accessibility to music education can be widened.
