At a glance headlines: February 5, 2015

A funding boost for cultural education programmes, a celebration of school STEM clubs, and a rise in university applications are among the SecEd at a glance headlines for February 5, 2015.

Cultural education programmes in England are to benefit from £109 million in the next financial year. As part of this, £75 million is being given to the 123 music education hubs, while the six In Harmony programmes, which target children in deprived areas using orchestral music, are getting £1.1 million. Also benefiting are the Sorrell Foundation’s Art and Design Saturday Clubs, which target 14 to 16-year-olds (, the Museums and Schools Programme, which links regional and national museums with schools, and the Heritage Schools Programme, which helps schools across the country to make effective use of their local historic environment. Much of this work is organised via the Arts Council. Visit:
