Reaching out to Hub Partners
We recognise the importance of a broad and diverse offer and one in which children from all backgrounds see themselves represented. To achieve this, we actively seek to work with a range of organisations (both local and national) that provide new and exciting expertise. We have had huge success connecting with, training and nurturing emerging local artists to deliver inclusive musical experiences across a wide range of genres.
Training Our Staff
Our annual programme of CPD has inclusion at its heart and is influenced by our Hub Core Values statement which includes training days, meetings, shadowing and mentoring. Working and consulting with nationally respected experts, we have devised a programme of training to school teachers, our contracted staff and the wider hub workforce.
Media Represents Everyone
Through all our media and advertising, we value, promote and celebrate the many musical traditions of our vibrant and culturally diverse town: giving a clear message that all musical styles are valued equally and that our ability to offer varied and authentic musical experiences is a key priority.
Ensuring a diverse workforce
Partnership agreements ensure that all partner organisations sign up to adhere to our core values with strong EDI principles and quality framework. As part of Bedford Borough Council we adhere to robust equality and diversity recruitment policies and processes.
We are committed to diversifying our staff team which consists of contracted staff, self-employed tutors, freelance experts, student helpers and parent volunteers: giving us a blend that enables inclusion, collaboration and change.
