23rd March 2018

We are delighted to see Teachwire publish their article on the benefits of WCET in KS2, based on the invaluable research lead by Professor Martin Fautley from Birmingham City University. Click HERE to view the Teachwire article or view and download below the full report.

The Whole Class Ensemble Teaching (WCET) Research Report, commissioned by Music Mark and with Arts Council funding, was presented for the first time at the 2017 Music Mark Annual Conference, which ran from the 24th to the 25th of November in Kenilworth, Warwick. It is the latest comprehensive review of WCET since the National Plan for Music Education (NPME) was published in 2012 and Music Mark is extremely proud to be part of a collaborative effort that continues to assess the impact and efficiency of NPME, whilst holding key decision makers in music education to account.
