MUSIC MARK
Our Vision
Music Mark is a membership organisation, subject association and charity. Our membership consists of Music Education Services and Hubs, their teaching and support teams; schools; individuals; NYMOS; HE/FE bodies; Hub and Corporate Partners.

On behalf of our members,partners and the wider sector, Music Mark lobbies for, and champions, a government supported, high quality, music education provision for all school aged children and young people which addresses diversity, equity and inclusion at its core.

Our Work
We aim to enable our members, and the wider music education sector, to deliver high-quality musical and social outcomes for all children and young people

We call upon key decision makers in central and local government, and all who hold a stake in the strategic planning and operational delivery of music learning, to support us in continuing to raise that status and value of music in a broad and balanced education

We support the professional development of the workforce, especially in the quality of teaching and learning, as well as the quality of access and provision in music education, in schools, music services and music education hubs
W
e facilitate networking and communication, and the exchange of ideas and expertise amongst our membership and the wider sector

We place the strongest possible focus on the impacts and outcomes of music education for children and young people, musically, personally, socially and educationally
N.B. Organisations mentioned here offer short training courses that JAMES feel are worthy of consideration for those seeking additional training for the Creative Industries.

JAMES accreditation of courses applies to full-time academically validated HE or FE courses. These short courses are, therefore, not accredited by JAMES but, after consideration of the value of these organisations, we have invited them to become 'Educational Friends of JAMES'.
