Practical Session 1 - Update

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners And we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 1 Practical exams scheduled for November. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Online training and supporting films

Child Protection in Education (Music) is a bespoke online course developed by the Musicians’ Union in partnership with EduCare.

This course is suitable for anyone who works with children and young people in a music setting.

The training programme uses the short films available below to show a variety of good and bad practice examples. These will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.
