Music Education Hubs survey

Since 2013 we have published an annual report looking at how Music Education Hubs are performing.

What are Music Education Hubs?

Music Education Hubs are groups of organisations such as local authorities, schools, art organisations, community or voluntary organisations. They work together to create joined-up music education provision, respond to local need and fulfil the objectives of the hub.

An independent analysis of performance

Since 2013 we have commissioned independent analysis of Music Education Hubs’ annual performance.

The analysis is based on information provided by hubs in an annual survey, as well as data from the National Pupil Database. The reports focus on the main key performance indicators agreed between the Arts Council and the Department for Education.

For 2014/15 you can also see survey data at an individual hub level. To look at the key data for a hub in comparison with national averages, select the hub from the dropdown menu in this tool. To look at all the hubs together against a specific indicator, see these graphs. You can also see the full dataset.

Music Education Hubs operate in unique settings and this context paper sets out some key points for consideration when looking at hub data.

The 2015 report was published in October 2016. It is available to download below, along with the reports from 2013 and 2014.
