Paritor sponsor National Music Council’s Local Authority Music Education Awards

This year we will be sponsoring the Annual Local Authority Music Education Awards. Organised by the National Music Council the awards are set to be even bigger and better than before.

The awards have been in existence for nearly 40 years and last year attracted over ** entries. It is an exciting opportunity for music services to celebrate achievements from pupils and staff and this year they will be even more significant, in a time when future funding is uncertain it is crucial to be able to showcase the importance of music education. As part of the sponsorship we will be working with the National Music Council to increase the profile of the awards and hopefully assist in raising the profile of the music education.

Mark Pemberton, Chair of the National Music Council: “We are delighted that Paritor have agreed to sponsor the NMC’s local authority music education awards. These awards provide recognition for those Local Authorities across the country that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to music provision in a particular year. Paritor’s sponsorship of the awards will add prestige and value for the winners and help boost the profile of the awards at a time when music provision at local authority level faces the challenges of public spending cuts”.
