Pathways Placements

Trainee workshop leader opportunities for early career musicians

Pathways is our programme of training and development opportunities, and this placement scheme is a chance for a cohort of musicians to take part in a bespoke range of opportunities, which are co-created with each participant in order to be responsive and relevant in relation to their aims and existing experience. Opportunities include:

  • Workshop observations (NB workshops are currently taking place online; socially distanced, in person activity will resume when it is safe to do so)
  • Training sessions
  • Supporting workshop leader opportunities
  • Guest performances on projects
  • Peer learning across the cohort
  • Mentoring from experienced workshop leaders

Opportunities will be offered across the Learning programme, with an emphasis on our work with children, young people and families.

Participating musicians will be paid a training fee of £50/half day (up to 4 hours) and £80/full day (4-8 hours) for workshops.

The scheme runs from January – July 2021, and dates will be mutually agreed according to availability and existing project dates.

Time commitment is flexible depending on the mutually agreed programme for each participant, but it could include, for example:

  • An initial welcome meeting, three observations of workshops across different projects and a follow-up meeting to reflect on your experience and discuss possible next steps
  • A welcome meeting, a supporting leader role at 6 weekly project sessions, and a follow-up meeting

We have now appointed our 2021 cohort – see who they are here
