Venue: Hallam Hall, Sheffield Hallam University, City Campus, Owen Building, Howard Street Sheffield S1 1WB
Date: Monday 25 February 2019
Times: 10.00am – 4.00pm
Price: £25 + VAT per delegate (The music service will pay the delegate fee for the first school which responds)
The day will look at how the exam boards – both curriculum and music – are considering their strategic role; what music services are doing (or might do) to work in partnership with secondary schools; and, perhaps most importantly, hear and discuss the reality for a school, a music department, a parent or a student.
The aim of the day will be to find a collective response to the question of ‘what should/can we do to be proactive in addressing the current situation?’ and what should be included in any future National Plan to promote a collaborative but realistic approach to reversing the current ‘crisis’.
Can we encourage you join us and to bring colleagues from the ‘chalk face’ if possible? All Music Mark Schools Members can book too, but if you are in a school that is not currently a School Member, then we (the Music Service) can book your place.
I (Pete Edwards) will be attending this Symposium on behalf of the Music service so if you are intending to attend, let me know and we can sort out transport etc. It would be really useful to have Wolverhampton represented by school staff as well as the Music Service. We will fund the fee for the first delegate who applies via us.
