This one day online conference will look at priorities for music education following the publication of the Government’s Model Music Curriculum, and in light of the findings of the recently published Ofsted subject research review, including discussion on the curriculum’s implementation, the likely impact on teaching standards in schools, and assessing the funding necessary for its delivery.

With the discussion taking place in the wake of Covid-19 and the UK’s leaving the EU, delegates will also consider the wider impact of music education on the creative sector, and opportunities presented for creating a talent pipeline for the music industry and playing a key role in the sector’s recovery from the pandemic.

The keynote contribution will focus on immediate priorities for music education and the findings of the Model Curriculum Expert Advisory Panel from the panel’s chair, Baroness Fleet.

The agenda is structured to bring out latest thinking on:
• immediate priorities for music education and the Model Music Curriculum
• improving standards in music education
• priorities for the music education workforce
• music in schools and the wider creative sector.

This online event will include:
• full, four-hour programme including comfort breaks
• information-rich discussion involving key policymakers and stakeholders
• conference materials provided in advance, including speaker biographies
• speakers presenting via webcam, accompanied by slides if they wish, using the Cisco WebEx professional online conference platform
• opportunities for live delegate questions and comments with all speakers
• a recording of the addresses, all slides cleared by speakers, and further materials, is made available to all delegates after the event
• delegates are able to add their own written comments and articles following the conference, to be distributed to all attendees and more widely
• networking opportunities for delegates to e-meet and interact.
