Our guide to forming a music teachers' co-operative references various booklets and fact sheets published by Co-operatives UK and the Musicians’ Union and draws upon David Barnard's personal experience of forming Swindon Music Co-operative in 1998.
The purpose of Altogether Now is:
- To explain what a co-operative is and how it works
- To explore some of the key issues and challenges which may affect the set-up process, including TUPE, employment status, VAT, pricing, direct billing, admin, location, websites, banking,
- To provide some guidance, hints and advice on forming your own music teachers' co-operative
Altogether Now: A guide to Forming Music Teaching Co-operatives was first published in 2015.
