EIS wins Best One-Off Publication at TUC Communication Awards
The Educational Institute of Scotland has won the Best One-Off Publication at the 2012 TUC Communication Awards for our Charter for Instrumental Music which was published in 2011.
The Charter for Instrumental Music was launched to promote and protect music education in Scotland's schools. The Charter was distributed to all key decision makers, local authorities and schools in Scotland to support the vital work of Instrumental Music Teachers across Scotland.
Despite the financial pressures on local authority budgets it is vital that instrumental music education services are maintained in schools. The EIS Charter highlights the value of music education to pupils, and calls for proper support and funding for its provision in all schools.
EIS President, Susan Quinn, attended the Award Ceremony in London where she picked up the award for Best One-Off Publication.
We were also successful in the best website category and received an award commending the EIS website.
