Associate advisers

We work with associate advisers to develop arts education, delivering training, projects and resources. Some of our advisers specialise in curriculum support for schools in specific subject areas. If you contact the Spaeda office we will be happy to discuss your requirements and find a suitable consultant to meet your needs.
