BAMT NQMT Development Scheme - Applications Open

BAMT is proud to open applications for its fully funded Development Scheme for Newly Qualified Music Therapists (NQMT). This pilot scheme will provide a programme that builds on pre-registration training to support therapists during their first 2 years of practice. It will up-skill and nurture Music Therapists in order to build the best foundations for a successful career. The fully funded BAMT scheme will provide a combination of specialist CPD & expert lectures for the NQMT cohort as well as group mentoring. Year 2 of the programme will have part peer led CPD sessions/lectures and bi-monthly group mentoring sessions.

Speaking about the scheme Andrew Langford, BAMT CEO, said, “Newly Qualified Music Therapists have trained through an extraordinary time due to the restrictions Covid has caused; so more than ever it is vital they get this mentoring opportunity to support them in their start as Music Therapists. This programme will build upon what they have learnt in training and provide additional skills for wherever they choose to work”.

The scheme will initially run as a pilot programme and will have capacity for 25 NQMTs. To be eligible for the scheme Music Therapists must have qualified from their training course in 2022 and be a BAMT member.

Application deadline is now 9am, 3rd November. More information on the scheme and details on how to apply can be found below.
