Latest News: Music Leader Training
In recent years, we have had an increase in the numbers of schools and youth clubs interested in offering the Notivate Singer/Songwriter Programme and Music Video Production Programme to their young people. So are working with a number of Post-16 students, who want to learn about our programmes and potentially join our music leader accreditation scheme.
Candidates will be take part in some music leader training, attend an evening at Kings Park, Northampton, to learn about child protection, shadow an existing Notivate group in a school or youth club, then spend a weekend at Whitemoor Lakes residential centre to lead a Notivate group.
If you or anyone you know is interested in this activity, please contact us.
