From the outset of this project it was one of our aims to produce a best practice guide for models of vocational education and content development around innovative media relevant and attractive to employers and trainees of the music industry.
Across this website we have collated many insights and reference points to our project concerns which present themselves as a potential resource for those interested in music industries, heritage, digital production and vocational education.
Ultimately, the project partners here are the most valuable resource for anyone interested in these fields. Thus, what you will find below are a series of files that capture us talking about what we do best. In each case, partners talk about their backgrounds in education or music, in public or private sectors. Each gives some sense of the context in which they operate, their organization as well as the challenges and opportunities presented to them across the EU.
You’ll find then that this ‘guide’ presents only a snapshot of the work of each partner, their interactions and perception of the issues facing them. We hope that as a resource therefor, you’ll find it useful to post comments and ask questions to us directly about these insights as a lead for your own work.
