Welcome to MEHEM UpRising!
Strengthening inclusive music provision in the East Midlands and beyond
Welcome to MEHEM Uprising! a three year Youth Music funded project that is improving the quality and consistency of music-making opportunities for young people with additional needs across the region.
What is UpRising for?
For instrumental teachers and workshop leaders
We provide training and resources for colleagues to work more confidently and effectively with pupils with additional needs in mainstream schools, special ed schools and alternative provision.
For special ed classroom teachers
We support music coordinators and non-specialist classroom teachers to deliver curriculum music to their classes, and support the development of music curricula.
For MEHEM Hubs and Partner organisations
We are committed to developing a better understanding of inclusive practice across entire delivery teams.
We are increasing the amount of specialists within hubs that can work in special ed settings and supporting hubs to increase the breadth and depth of their offer in all settings, including Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) schools, Designated Special Provision (DSP) units and PRUs.
For colleagues across the country
We offer free online resources and occasional public events, including our UpRising! Hivemind twilight sessions
Supported by Youth Music with funding from National Lottery via Arts Council England
