Funded Opportunities

The Music Education Hub led by Kent Music has a range of responsibilities in line with the National Plan for Music Education which was published in November 2011 by the Department for Education. Music Education Hubs receive a grant from the Department for Education (DfE) which is administered by Arts Council England. In Kent we then determine the usage of this funding based on the assigned core roles for Music Education Hubs.

Kent Music have developed a new suite of funded opportunities for schools, starting in September 2022. 

In order to access funded opportunities, schools must fill in both a short application form, and the annual Schools Survey  in the summer term before they wish to access it.

Completing your brief application form will inform Kent Music of your intentions for funded opportunities in the upcoming academic year, for example to engage an ensemble leader or access bespoke support. Meanwhile, completing the Schools Survey will confirm your eligibility for accessing funded opportunities.

Once schools have completed both the application form and survey, Kent Music will respond to confirm your application before the end of the academic year.

Applications for funded opportunities for 2022-23 are now closed.

All schools who completed an application and the annual schools survey will be contact before the end of the academic year to inform them of their funded opportunity. If you have any questions related to your application for funded opportunity or the annual schools survey please contact or Liv Edwards

Full details of the funded opportunities, including FAQs, can be found in our information booklet and Terms & Conditions document:

About Schools Survey

Kent Music commissions an annual survey for all schools in Kent. The purpose of this survey is to collect information about musical activities and provision that took place in the academic year 2021-22. The completion of this survey means that schools become eligible to receive funded opportunities from Kent Music for academic year 2022-23.

The 2022 Schools Survey is now closed. Thank you to all the schools who took the time to complete the survey.

More information can be found on the Schools Survey webpage.
