About the Role

This is a strategic role designed to provide leadership across a designated geographical area of Kent. The role will encompass the development of a strategy for the area, the development of instrumental and vocal tuition, the management of term time out-of-school activities, and supporting the development of school relationships, bringing together partners to ensure the musical offer is as rich and diverse as possible.

The role is one of a team of four area managers, each supported by an area administrator and/or a lead area administrator.
