Recent developments in school structures and curricular can leave us baffled. Following on from our 2011 event, Changing Landscapes, LEAN invites you to join us on 26th January 2012 to debate the potential impact on arts learning of these changes to the education system and generate positive ideas for our sector to capitalise on the new landscape.LEAN invites you to debate changes to schools that will affect arts education, as well as generate positive ideas for the sector, at our event and AGM.
What are the changes?
How will they impact on our work?
How can we overcome the challenges of change and take advantage of the new opportunities created?
This event will demystify the changes, including free schools, academies, the National Plan for Music Education, the Bridge network, English Baccalaureate and the curriculum review.
Speakers will include:
