MusiQuE Training 2022

The MusiQuE Board and Office are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Peer Reviewers Training Workshop, on 19 October, 9 and 10 November 2022!

The workshop aims to offer elements of training and professional development to potential and confirmed MusiQuE Peer Reviewers: representatives of higher music education institutions, students in higher music education, representatives of music schools and representatives of organisations from the music profession – experienced or not – interested in becoming peer reviewers for MusiQuE in the future or in reflecting on their experience and practice as Peer Reviewers, or with a general interest in quality assurance and accreditation in conservatoires.

This year’s edition will include specific sessions for those interested in acting as Chair or Secretary of a Review Team in MusiQuE review procedures.

The training is delivered by MusiQuE Board members, the MusiQuE Office and by experienced MusiQuE Peer Reviewers.

More information on target audience and purposes of the training can be found here.
