Tower Hamlets & City of London Music Hub Board
Will you join us in improving the lives and wellbeing of children and young people through music and the arts?
Tower Hamlets and City of London Music Education Hub (TH & CoL) is seeking to recruit members to form a new Hub Board.
The Board will meet four times a year, usually from 5.30 – 7.00pm, working with the Hub and its stakeholders to support the effective governance of the organisation and to further develop a high-quality, inclusive music and arts education offer for children and young people. It will also help to support the workforce, and promote a diverse range of activities, which are relevant, provide progression, career pathways, and are accessible to all.
The TH & CoL Hub is led by the Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES), which is part of Tower Hamlets Council. It receives all its funding for music education directly from the Department for Education (DfE), managed by Arts Council England (ACE), to lead activities in support of the National Plan for Music Education (NPME). Additional funding is provided by the Council to support other arts activities including dance, drama, film, and visual arts.
With recent developments in music and arts education, including proposals from the DfE and ACE around the next phase of Music Hub development, the Board will play an important role in responding to the needs of our community and to help to build strategic resilience in the best interests of all stakeholders.
It is an exciting time to consider joining a group which, through promoting music and arts education, will have a real impact on improving the wellbeing, achievements and opportunities for thousands of children and young people in Tower Hamlets and the City of London. If you are willing to commit your time and expertise to help to achieve this, we would welcome an application from you. We especially encourage applications from people from protected characteristic groups and with backgrounds reflecting the demographic and socio-economic diversity of the Borough’s population.
