Overview

We are seeking views on music education, to inform our proposals for the refresh of the National Plan for Music Education.

Consultation

Why We Are Consulting

As the current National Plan for Music Education states, great music education is a partnership between classroom teachers, specialist teachers, professional performers and a host of other organisations, including those from the arts, charity and voluntary sectors. We are therefore seeking to hear from a range of interested parties, including young people, parents, teachers, employers in the music industry and music educators.

This call for evidence will gather views on what’s working well and areas which should be built on in refreshing the National Plan for Music Education.
