Annual INSET for Music Administrators and those working in administrative positions in a school music department.
Friday 10th November 2017
St Edward’s School, Oxford
This annual gathering for anyone involved in school music administration has been happening for several years now and has become an invaluable day for learning skills, sharing new practice and networking between school music departments. With a packed programme and plenty of chance for Q&A recent days at Loughborough, London and Oxford have attracted our largest numbers of 50 delegates.
We are very pleased to return to Oxford and visit St Edward’s School.
