The Chartered College of Teaching has launched a new music education network for teachers in London.
The Chartered College is an independent professional membership body for the teaching profession that opened in January 2017. Its stated aim is to support teachers with the expertise they need to maintain genuine excellence – achieving the best outcomes for children and young people.
The Chartered College covers all phases of education and subject specialisms, and connects a diverse community of teachers to share ideas and knowledge. Membership is voluntary and offers a pathway of professional development to support teachers at every stage throughout their career. This is achieved with providing access to the latest research, case studies, articles and good practice.
The Music Education Network in London, one of the founding networks the Chartered College launched in the summer, will bring together members to work on issues of direct concern to classroom practice through stimulating face-to-face events and online forums, designed to offer opportunities to ensure that as many teachers as possible can enjoy access to professional collaboration and development. The network is hosted by City of London School for Girls.
Dr Steven Berryman, Director of Music at City of London School for Girls, will lead the network and is keen to hear from any primary/secondary teachers who would like to join the conversation and be involved in the network. The launch event takes place Thursday 2 November 2017 from 5 pm at City of London School for Girls (Barbican), and includes a concert by the Schubert Ensemble.
Classroom teachers who are keen to attend the launch event should complete the form here by 30 September 2017.
