MusiQuE Training 2024 at SEADOM Congress

The MusiQuE Board and Office are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Peer Reviewers Training Workshop, on 28 February, 6 and 7 March 2024!

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. The Training is also open to other performing arts sectors with conservatoires.

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

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