WANTED – Coordinators for 2 of our Musical Clusters.

Centred around an ongoing programme of schools visits and cluster meetings (which will engage approx. 80% of Wiltshire Schools over a 3 year period), contracted Coordinators do the following with support, resources and direction from our core team:

  • Build an evolving profile of young people’s musical activity in their area.
  • Encourage and advocate for a broad range of musical opportunities in terms of both participation and progression.
  • Identify particular needs in terms of provision and or CPD.
  • Bring together a range of individuals and organisations from the area and encourage the sharing of expertise, skills, resources and opportunities.

The 2 clusters in question are:

  • Chippenham – 22 schools and a range of music / cultural providers, with an allocation of £3350 for 15.8 days over an academic year contract.
  • Marlborough & Pewsey – Also, 22 schools and a range of music / cultural providers, with an allocation of £3350 for 15.8 days over an academic year contract.

Our current coordinator (for both clusters), Jacki Pattenden has made excellent progress over the last 2 years. Sadly (for us) Jacki will be leaving the area in summer 2018.
