This summer term (2014) sees the launch of a unique Peer-to-Peer programme which will support teachers in developing the quality of music teaching and learning at Key Stage 3 across London.
Peer-to-Peer has been devised by The UK Association of Music Education – Music Mark and will be delivered in partnership with the Barbican, ABRSM and leading music education institutions such as the University of Greenwich and University of Sussex.
It invites teachers and school leaders to learn from and with peer expert colleagues who will identify, cascade and support excellent music teaching through a programme comprised of six stages of excellence.
Robin Hammerton HMI, National Lead for Music, said:
“Teaching music – musically. It’s at the heart of improving pupils’ progress and attainment. Professional development, where teachers learn from each other, can really support this and I look forward to seeing the outcomes of this new Peer-to-Peer programme.”

There are two opportunities for teachers to get involved, with the first programme running from 13th June to summer 2015. The deadline to sign up for the first cohort is 23rd May.
