We're always looking to improve your experience. Please send us your feedback.
The Nottinghamshire Music Hub CPD Network provides a strong and supportive learning community for subject leaders and those involved in delivering music in Nottinghamshire schools.
Activities are delivered on behalf of the Hub by our delivery partner The Minster School in Southwell in their music studios. There are two separate but related networks for secondary and primary phase teachers. Sessions explore best practice in music education from a local and national perspective, with activities being tailored to meet the needs of individual participants.
