Nordoff Robbins Development Scheme

Nordoff Robbins Development Scheme

The BRIT Trust – helping Nordoff Robbins reach more people who need music therapy support

In September 2015, with the help of funding from the BRIT Trust, Nordoff Robbins launched their Graduate Employment / Partnership Development Scheme.

The aim of the scheme was to increase the reach of Nordoff Robbins’ services across the north of the UK, expanding into new partner organisations to ensure that their work was available to a more diverse number of people who would benefit from music therapy.

Seven graduates from Nordoff Robbins’ Masters in Music Therapy course have been given the opportunity to work 2 days a week in a total of 14 new partner organisations, including Heaton School in Stockport, Greenacre School in Barnsley and Longley School in Huddersfield.

To raise awareness of the brilliant work these graduates are currently doing in these placements, Nordoff Robbins has asked each graduate to write a blog about their experiences.

You can read more about the vital role these therapists play in SEN schools on the Nordoff Robbins website:
