We will be sponsoring the Westminster Education Forum’s keynote seminar on The future for music education in England - maintaining standards, music hubs and career pathways. The session will provide an opportunity for delegates to talk about the priorities for Music Education Hubs in England.

At this seminar, our colleague from Oxford Cambridge and RSA, Marie Bessant, Subject Advisor, will be one of the panel members for the session on Provision, uptake and teaching at primary and secondary level. The session will explore the limitations being experienced by schools on resources, how a well-rounded music education is demonstrated and what measures can be taken to address concerns from some stakeholders to a reduction in provision at primary and secondary level. The panelists will also explore actions that can better support students and teachers in England to ensure that appropriate standard is applied.

Further sessions will follow through to 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.
