Thuringian Education Plan for under 18s

We are a member of the consortium involved with the Thuringian education plan for under 18s in the field of 'music education'. Its main goal is the implementation of the Thuringian education plan for children and adolescents under the age of 18 and the measures associated with this plan. Programmes that have already been put into place are evaluated. Moreover, we lead discussions about education politics with key political figures at local and regional levels in order to create the necessary frameworks and guarantee the continuation of functioning programmes.
