CDMT, Council for Dance Drama and Musical Theatre, Validated Awarding Organisations logoInstitutional Members

CDMT validates many of the world's leading awarding organisations offering performing arts qualifications. Some of these awarding organisations are also recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and have their provision included on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) in England. The RQF is further mapped to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) which aims to improve the understanding and portability of qualifications across Europe.

CDMT ensures the highest standards of examination provision by carrying out quality assurance inspections and comparability studies of member awarding organisations and their examinations. We also take part in a range of regulatory forums with the purpose of contributing to national initiatives and to improving consistency and public understanding of performing arts’ qualifications across the education system.

The following awarding organisations have successfully undertaken the inspection process and are Validated by the CDMT:
