Gigajam across the National Educational Network
Gigajam’s award winning Essential Skills Course is now available in more schools
than ever before with agreements that make Gigajam available in over 100 of the
UK’s Local Authorities.
The UKs Regional Broadband Consortia lead the way in implementing the aims of
the government’s strategy for ‘Harnessing Technology’. Six of the 13 UK RBCs,
which make up the National Education Network, now provide all of their schools
with access to a significant taster of Gigajam content.
Gigajam’s vision is to make learning a musical instrument available to All
pupils and students, free at the point of access. We have a lot of hard work to
do in enabling all students to be able have access to musical instrument
lessons, whether they are at school, or at home, but we continue to make
significant progress in support of the aims of our government’s Music Manifesto.
Personalisation, Independent Learning and Assessment for Learning are just some
of the ways in which Gigajam ‘Harnesses Technology’ to create genuinely
affordable, sustainable and progressive opportunities to support music making in
and out of the class room.
