Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Stuart Eaves and I am the Programme Leader for the music department at Kidderminster College. From September 2019, MAS Records merged with the music courses at the college to provide excellent provision, experiences and opportunities for musicians. I invite you to browse around our website to get more of an insight on all the wonderful things that go on in this forward thinking department.
This is an unprecedented time we find ourselves in. As we are all working out how to adapt to changes in all our lives over the coming weeks, I thought I’d try to add some clarity on how we plan to move forward with students on the music course. You will have no doubt seen in the news that exams have been postponed and there is uncertainty with how students will receive their qualifications. It may be the case that the government will use predicted grades and a report from lecturers to determine outcomes. Therefore, it is really important that students continue to complete their work and have direction from their tutors and lecturers.
From Monday 23rd March, we will be delivering the provision online using a mixture of resources. All students have been told about this and we have had ‘trial runs’ in lessons to make sure everyone understands and everything works from a technical aspect.
There will be an adapted timetable to follow with the expectation that learners will log on at their allotted times. See below this letter for student guidelines.
As this is something we have never had to do before there will be most likely a learning curve for everyone in the first couple of days. However, we are confident that this is the best approach and gives students the best opportunity to get the grade they deserve at the end of all their hard work.
Stay safe and I wish you all the good health in these times,
Music – MAS Records (Kidderminster College)
