Has anyone been involved with the music medals initiative?
As someone who does group teaching I shall be looking into them more closely.
Do you think that they will have the same credibility as the grades?
I am considering that they could be a good thing for a majority of pupils who are not necessarily aiming to get past grade 5 (how many of your total pupils will progress past grade 5?)- anyone who is keener to progress could switch to higher grades at a later time.
