  4. COVID-19 UPDATE – JULY 2020

    Leave a Comment

    During what can only be described as a challenging and unsettling period for all – Masters have stayed connected and committed to our students, with online training throughout this global pandemic. Our students and faculty have shown immense application to these difficult times. Masters have also navigated themselves through these unprecedented times, by ensuring that we continue to reach out to both local and national MP’s. Letting our voice be heard in championing the arts and our own colleges aims, goals and place within this Industry. Applying for grants and lobbying with local parliament to help raise support. Our main aim now is to get all of our students and staff safely back into full training and work for September, as restrictions continue to ease but ultimately when it is safe to do so. The Health and safety of everyone remains paramount. We are working tirelessly to understand and keep up to speed with the UK Governments guidelines, as Masters make ready for the Autumn Term. Please be assured that as a Team, we are preparing for all outcomes but ultimately we have the vision and focus for a September return. Whatever format this may also be forced to take, the safety of all will be at the forefront, followed closely by a full training programme to fit and suit all circumstances and eventualities.

    Thank You

    15/6/2020

    Following our previous statement Masters would like to reach out to you as we continue to listen and learn from our student experiences. Together we are stronger and committed to ensure an equal, safe and fully inclusive place to train, breathe and be. We respect this is the start of a long road ahead and we would like to thank you in advance for allowing us the time to action. We are working as a Team and recognise change is vital and that change starts now.

     

    We would like to outline our proposals with you and welcome conversation with us by emailing info@mastersperformingarts.co.uk alongside regular visits to our website, which will detail all of these policies as they develop further.

     

    Our Advisory Panel

    Masters are fully immersed in stage one of creating this independent panel, actively reaching out & holding daily conversations with a number of respected voices within the Black, Asian & Ethnically Diverse communities to join as representatives in order to create a diverse, balanced & informative panel. Focusing now on key issues, these key voices will highlight where reviews, situations & changes need to be made across management, faculty & student areas. We are grateful and respect the conversations we have had already on this and for the commitment shown to us.

     

    Our Student Council

    A consistent & committed plan to hear every single student voice equally.

    Following detailed research into this area across all education platforms we are creating The Student Council.

    A combined effort from all sides to create a platform that is ultimately led by a board of students, voted by the students, for the students.

    Throughout each term the council will feedback to management in order to open up conversations between both parties, respectfully continuing to hear their voices.

     

    Our Wellbeing, Mindset, Mental Health & Nutrition

    Masters are committed to increase our current services offered & provide a consistent safe place for all conversation.

    By enhancing our current service, we are reaching out to sources and specialised consultants within these fields to provide an equal & balanced service available to all students & faculty.

    We acknowledge, respect & remain mindful.

    Thank you

    A STATEMENT FROM MASTERS PERFORMING ARTS

    We acknowledge that we have shown failure in our duty of care towards our Black, Asian , And Ethnically Diverse students who have trained with us.
    We must take this opportunity to offer our deepest apologies. We now realise the experience of our Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse students has not been where it needs to be.

    This needs to change. This will change.

    We had always hoped that Masters was fully inclusive, encouraging and a supportive environment for all, however we now understand that this has not been everyone’s experience and this is something we deeply regret.

    We are conducting an internal review alongside reaching out individually to students past and present to respectfully hear their voice.
    We are sincerely committed to listen, learn and re-educate ourselves so any previous mistakes are avoided as we move forward to create a space where all students feel equal, confident and safe.
