Peer Groups

Get involved in our range of facilitated peer groups for Music Mark Members which offer the opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and collaborative problem-solving with colleagues in similar roles across the country.

Find out more about the Peer Groups we are currently running below. If you are a Music Mark Member, you are invited to sign up to as many Peer Groups as are relevant to your work. These sessions are held online using Zoom, usually once or twice per term. Details of the date and time of each meeting and how to join them are emailed to all those signed up to the Peer Group.

In addition to mentoring, we can support you through mentoring and coaching. We also have a programme of training and events that members can access for free or at reduced rates.
