MENTORING AND MENTORING CO-ORDINATOR TRAINING OPPORTUNITY
The Scottish Mentoring Network is delivering accredited training in Mentoring for arts organisations and artists working in learning settings. This may be of interest to you or teaching musicians you work with as mentoring may be one of the ways in which non-formal organisations can better support the development and practice of their teaching staff. Jo Miller of Riverside Music in Stirling has just submitted her report on a pilot mentoring project she ran with the Scots Music Group on our behalf. I’ve attached a copy below.
A limited number of places is being held for youth music organisations / providers, who can apply for funding from the YMI CPD fund. Deadline is October 3.
