To increase Take Art’s resilience to external circumstances to enable it to deliver a continuing music making programme for early years

Through a regular programme of CPD, networking and representationTake Art has successfully engaged with strategic partners across the music education and EY sector in the South West. Staff have also lobbied, trained and been consulted at a national level helping to position Take Art in this specialist area. Events such as “Are You Early Years Ready?” consolidated Take Art’s position further and paved the way for continued funding applications with a wider network of MEHs across the South West. Partnerships across three regional universities have facilitated a closer delivery and understanding of the HE sectors and workforce development for EYPs. The relationship with CREC continues to thrive with new students being supported and mentored by project manager, Jane Parker.
