Continuing Professional Development

As the lead partner for the Music Education Hub, we are committed to providing professional development opportunities for our school based colleagues and also our network of practitioners. 

Where possible we offer an embedded approach where CPD and teacher support is included within the delivery of our projects and programmes such as First Access. Team teaching, observation and the sharing of skills are integrated across many strands of our work.
