Bristol Beacon is home to the award-winning music education hub for the city of Bristol. As part of Creative Learning and Engagement (CLE) our Music Hub ensures that all children, whether in schools or community settings, can access and take part in high-quality musical activities.
The Whole Class and Progression Lead is responsible for leading and developing progression, particularly in Whole Class (WCET) pathways to music education in and out of schools across Bristol, maintaining quality, efficiency and developing talent development opportunities. The role will lead on training and supporting Music Practitioners in schools and other settings with best practice pedagogy through a comprehensive and inclusive CPD framework and training programme with the aim of retaining and attracting a talented music practitioner workforce.
The role also supports our Music Practitioner workforce through reflective practice and targeted support where needed and through the Bristol Musical Schools Membership will support strategic partnerships with schools, multi academy trusts and cultural organisations to increase opportunities for all children to experience live music, play an instrument, sing, perform and compose. At the heart of this role is a commitment to inclusion and an ability to support schools in diverse communities traditionally less well served than others.
This is an exciting time to join us, Bristol Beacon, which reopens its central Bristol venue after 5 years of redevelopment at the end of November 2023.
How to Apply
