Effective practice is embedded in The Boom Dang Foundation through our Advanced Traineeship, which supports organisational development and develops a workforce of Music Leaders. Advanced Trainees work alongside The Boom Dang Foundation’s Artistic Director and Lead Project Leader. Learning is work-based through mentoring, observation, reflective practice and training sessions. Training sessions include professional practice, leadership, policies, working with groups, planning an overall scheme of work with session plans and making music. Advanced Trainees are equipped with a tool-box of ideas that they can utilise for when they become trained Music Leaders.
“I’m totally impressed with Therese’s dedication and commitment. She has an excellent rapport with students and her colleagues. She is extremely hard working and reliable, and really engages with the whole “HONK” Lancashire Youth Street band project”.
