The Music Partnerships Coordinator will work with the Director of Music to develop a strategy for

Through stronger partnerships, we seek to contribute to a stronger support network for music educators in the area which, in turn, will allow for more collaborative opportunities for pupils at both Westminster and in other schools.

The Music Partnerships Coordinator will work closely alongside the Director of Music to build upon the department’s strategy for music partnerships over the course of the two years, advocating for music education in schools, and developing sustained and meaningful partnerships for the benefit of both young people and music education professionals.

Their key responsibilities will include:

  • Developing opportunities for Westminster pupils to work / perform side-by-side with other young people
  • Developing a series of workshops in which Westminster pupils can work or perform with / coach pupils in local primary schools
  • Developing a series of primary school assemblies involving secondary school pupils
  • Assisting in the design and delivery of large-scale collaborative performances involving large numbers of pupils across different schools

Suitable candidates will need a degree in music or an equivalent qualification, with experience of working in youth music.
