As part of our ongoing development and evolution as a Music Education Hub, at the beginning of last year we pledged that we would undergo an external review. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic this was delayed but we are thrilled to now be surging ahead this term.
Sound Connections is working with the Tri-borough Music Hub (TBMH) on this strategic review of our activity and future plans to ensure that we are continuously improving our offer and are effectively reaching those with most need. This will help us to develop our programmes of work with pupils, schools, the workforce and the community.
During this coming Spring term, there are a range of activities happening – consultation, stakeholder surveys, focus groups, forums and interviews – this short mailing provides the details of what we are doing and how we are asking for your help and support.
An initial workshop took place in October 2020 and involved staff from across the TBMH alongside colleagues form the three Local Authorities, the Royal Albert Hall and Royal College of Music. Sound Connections also reviewed existing TBMH documentation and are now moving onto the second phase which is wider consultation.
Consultation opportunities for a range of voices to be heard
Between now and the end of the spring term, the following activities will take place:
Three online surveys - these will all close on Friday 26th February at 5pm:
If you feel that you do not fall into any of the above categories but would still like your voice to be heard, please contact email@example.com by 26th February.
Analysis and Report
A draft of findings and key recommendations will be produced by the end of this term and discussed with TBMH Senior Leadership Team. During the summer term, the Head of TBMH and Sound Connections will work together on producing a final summative report with key findings, which will be made available.
Thank you for your help with this consultation and in providing feedback so we can improve, develop and evolve as a music education hub that is fit for 2021 and the future.
