The Tri-borough Music Hub (TBMH) and a group of dedicated consortium partners have been awarded £105,000 by Youth Music towards a £140,000 project to support music education in the Early Years (EY). The project, named Tri-Music Together (TMT), will run from Jan 2019 to Dec 2021 working with local educators and will also have a wider remit looking to support Music Education Hubs (MEHs) to develop EY music provision across the country. The Tri-borough Early Years Music Consortium (TBEYMC) intends to build on the success of the work that took place in 2016-18 through a new programme.
As part of our programme of work, we are looking to strategically support other MEHs to develop their own approach to Early Years Music Education. As each MEH is at their own stage of development it is our intention to offer support that is most appropriate for each Hub.
MEHs wishing to become a MEH EYFS Partner in our Tri-Music Together (TMT) project will each make a financial contribution per annum to receive strategic support to develop their Early Years programmes.
Charge per annum: £500. This financial contribution includes:
Developing your EY programme
A one-day CPD session for Senior Hub Leaders and MEH’s EYFS Leads, happening on 7th May 2019 at the Lyric, Hammersmith . This will involve coming together with the other MEH EYFS Partners. This session will involve:
The opportunity to have one assigned EYFS leader from your MEH to shadow our EYFS Strategic Lead (Nicola Burke) in delivering CPD sessions; and receive some mentoring for their own development.
Reduced price bespoke CPD
Each MEH can also benefit from a reduced price bespoke CPD event in your own area. This will consist of 1x trainer delivering a session based on your needs, dependent on availability. Standard cost £800 per day, but MEH Partners only charged £500 for the day.
Access to the TMT CPD programme of activity
Early Years Practitioners and Music Leaders from your own MEH area will also be able to access the TMT programme of CPD at a cost of £40 half day or twilight; £80 full day.
