We’ve had the usual busy but productive start to the TMT school year. The timetables for each programme are now set, with the band programme being the usual jigsaw puzzle as I juggle tutor availability, school spaces and school timetables.
Albert Lee has started very well in the role of Resource Coordinator, having quickly obtained a handle on procedures for both programmes. He is starting to make subtle changes and has a quiet and professional manner with tutors.
Team meetings were held for all tutors on Friday 9 February. Tutors were happy to be back and there was a good vibe and atmosphere at each team meeting.
The band tutors have a very clear understanding of all systems and these are used consistently across all schools. This is due to Katherine Clayton’s clear procedures, the stable tutor pool and the returning school liaisons. Albert has taken over from Katherine almost seamlessly with the coordination of band resources.
