SSPDT helps to set up pipe band programmes for schools by providing advice and information, by awarding cash grants, and by lending pipes. Our core model is based on tuition that starts in P6 in primary schools that feed into one or two secondary schools. Each locality is different so we work closely with schools and communities to adapt our model to suit local circumstances.
Sometimes our first point of contact can be an interested parent or teacher; sometimes we work with councils or with other organisations such as Fèisean.
SSPDT works locally to equip people with the knowledge, networks, tools and skills that will enable them to manage a great tuition and pipe band programme.
