We have identified that we need to increase, support, and diversify our musical inclusion workforce, especially those working in alternative provision or with children and young people with social, emotional and mental health problems.
We are seeking to recruit up to 21 music practitioner/leaders (7 per hub organisation) to complete a comprehensive, fully funded musical inclusion training programme between May-Sept 2023.

The course is FREE to attend and there is a limited bursary pot available to help with any specific access needs. E.g. childcare costs, teaching cover, travel or expenses. If hidden costs are a barrier to you completing the course please let us know in your application and we can review how we might be able to support you through the bursary pot.
We actively encourage applications from musicians who have experienced barriers to music leadership – LGBTQI+, female, non-binary, disabled, global majority, and those from low-socio economic backgrounds.
