CPD Network for Music Teachers

NEXT Hub Network Day - Primary - AUTUMN 2021

NEXT Hub Network Day - Secondary - AUTUMN 2021

Our CPD Delivery Partner

The Minster Teaching School Alliance

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.

KEY ELEMENTS for 202-22  tbc 

Cost: £120 per delegate (£108 for Alliance Members) per academic year or £50 (£45) per individual network.  

There is a 3 for 2 offer available for schools wishing to attend multiple networks - these include EYFS, Maths, English, and Music.

Details are shown below - please note all networks are offered online until further notice.

Each session will take place on Zoom and a link will be sent out in advance. Here is the current format for this year:

  • Mornings will consist of an interactive workshop, see above, each designed to share resources and activities which can be used in the classroom and in more practical spaces.
  • There will be times for discussions and sharing of best practice and ideas; support for teaching in music within the current Covid-restrictions and guidance and the sharing of resources.
  • Afternoons will provide a 1:1 opportunity for all teachers.  This may be just to chat through curriculum plans or any issues within the school.

Contact:  Please email Trish O'Malley, Teaching School Administrator p.omalley@minster.notts.sch.uk if you have any queries or to reserve a place.

Some feedback from the 2019-20 networks:

"Enjoyed meeting other music leaders as I am new to music."
"New way of doing class rhythm and beat activities using the 'chair drumming' - great fun!"
