The FDS brings together established conservatoire training providers to develop discussion, strategy and projects around shared challenges, and to communicate to prospective students the options within and value of these training approaches. Here we aim to provide relevant information to prospective students, staff, parents and industry for clarity, accuracy and specificity about the options available.
The aims of the Federation are:
To engage in activities, projects and discussions collectively and individually that enable diverse groups of people to receive excellent training for the contemporary profession in all its aspects.
To work with other schools with shared vision, values and approaches in the training to share current best practice and identify opportunities for change and enhancement in the future.
To work with the industry and professional stakeholders to ensure that the training experiences provided allow graduates to enter and sustain professional careers with a current, adaptable and expert skillset.
To be an identified presence in public discussion of both the challenges and values of conservatoire training
