We expect our teachers to believe in the best for every pupil and school they work with. We want a member of the team who believes in the transformative power of music education, understands how to get the best possible musical outcomes from their pupils and schools that they work with.

As a Hub, we engage with 100% of primary schools and this work involves singing in primary and secondary settings. There is a mixture of work from specialist lessons to whole class teaching, along with the opportunity to be involved in City wide Singing Strategy with activities such as Singing Festivals, Choirs and the Singing Support Pack.

This portfolio of work occurs during the school day with some activities happening outside of this period in evenings and occasional weekends. This will discussed in more detail at interview.

We are a reflective musical community that is committed to inclusivity and creativity. We work hard to understand how we can best represent the musical interests and aspirations of children and young people from every corner of Sheffield. We have a growing reputation as an innovative Music Education Hub willing to drive change through authentic projects and programmes of activity delivered both directly, and in partnership with our strong and growing network of partners.

Sheffield Music Service, as the Lead organisation for Sheffield Music Education Hub, has a thriving programme of activity including whole class instrumental teaching, singing, specialist tuition and after school music groups and ensembles. Collectively we work with around 15,000 children and young people a week. We employ a dedicated team of Music Leaders (30 FTE) and also work with a growing team of freelance, accredited teachers.

Sheffield is a beautiful city, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country and boasts a varied and expanding cultural, creative and music scene; there is a growing momentum for change. Quality of life is high, green space and access to open countryside go hand in hand with a vibrant city economy. We are committed to placing the work of the Music Hub at the heart of our great city, being inspired musically by our environment, our children and young people, their many cultures and lived experiences.
