The day will comprise a mixed programme of debates, seminars, workshops & practical sessions, allowing participants to gather and share ideas for their First Access programmes.

Evidence underpinning this approach

The event draws on our team's extensive experience of supporting and developing First Access programmes, and in particular on the expertise of four former members of the leadership team of the KS2 Music CPD Programme (the government's national CPD programme for teachers involved in the Wider Opportunities programme, which ran from 2007-2011). Two of the day's sessions will be based on up to date research into Best Practice in First Access teaching: Stafford (2016) and Hallam (2016).

How users/participants can evaluate success

An online evaluation tool will be made available immediately after the event.

Follow-up activities and support

Participants will have access to an online bank of resources, research and presentations for a period of 6 months. Peer Sharing and Networking slots will be programmed into the day's events to promote professional collaboration and enquiry.
