We’re thrilled to announce that Point Blank Music School has been awarded arts funding by the Office for Students (OfS). This prestigious nationwide fund of £9.6 million is aimed at enhancing performing arts education and training at specialist providers, with a particular focus on contemporary music, drama, and dance. We are incredibly excited to be responsible for the music part of this initiative!
As one of the select few specialist institutions to receive this funding, we’re proud to represent music education and maintain our expertise in the field. The funding will allow us to enhance the student experience and facilities, with a focus on excellence in teaching and learning, industry partnerships to improve student education and career opportunities, and most importantly, we’ll be able to expand our reach and empower students from underrepresented groups to succeed in their studies and careers.
The performing arts make a significant economic and cultural contribution to our society while enriching lives and enabling students to develop a diverse range of skills. Institutions like ours create tens of thousands of jobs across the UK and contribute approximately £6.4 billion to the UK economy alone.
We will expand and develop new degree programs (exciting new programmes to be announced soon!), and our teaching will continue to drive innovation and shape the future of the music industry. We’re committed to ensuring that our students receive the highest-quality education and training, with the resources and support they need to succeed.
The Chief Executive of the OfS, Susan Lapworth said:
“The small size and highly specialised approach of the institutions we are funding play an important role in their educational experience of students, and this funding will ensure they can continue to deliver a high-quality experience.”
