    I have been asked to develop students' Music Leadership skills over the coming year. Apart from ArtsAward, does anyone know of any other accreditation that students could work towards?
    Also, I looked on the Youth Music Network site this morning but it seems to be poorly laid-out and a great example of looking decent whilst not actually giving any information [​IMG]
    Thanks in advance
     
  2. Hi Red wine fan,
    <font size="2">There is a lot of information on the Youth Music Network, but I agree it can be quite difficult to find - we're working on this to help improve the navigation as the content continues to grow. </font>
    Regarding your query, here are a few articles that hopefully might be of interest regarding developing young musicians:
    http://network.youthmusic.org.uk/resources/practice-write-ups/how-young-people-develop-reflection-and-evaluation-skills-south-west-mu
    http://network.youthmusic.org.uk/resources/visualisations/how-national-youth-music-organisations-support-musical-ability
    In terms of other accreditation, NOCN (http://www.nocn.org.uk/Homepage/) offer a number of different accrediations that can be relevent to Music Leadership, and there is always BTEC Performing Arts (http://www.edexcel.com/quals/introd/perf/Pages/default.aspx). Further to this I believe AQA do provide courses on leadership as well - http://web.aqa.org.uk/qual/cpd/leadership.php
    Hope some of this information is of help!
    Best Wishes
    Nick

    Thanks very much to you both. I have a meeting with our school Student Leadership Co-ordinator tomorrow so will try to look before then. Got an essay to complete & email in to my OU tutor before that though....!
