Collaboration across Music, Drama & Dance Grades

ABRSM, Tian Williams

CDMT works with its validated members who offer grades in dance, drama, music and musical theatre to:

  • provide an authoritative source of information for government agencies when dealing with issues of recognition, regulation and accreditation across the performing arts
  • promote the benefits of graded examinations to the public and raise their status within the UK and internationally
  • ensure the continued integrity of assessment methods and the reliability of standards across all disciplines.

Projects to date include: the production of a booklet to promote Graded Examinations as a distinct qualification type; a supporting website to promote participants’ qualifications; a sector report outlining the international regulatory status of the grades; an e-booklet highlighting the impact of Covid-19, and representations to the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Performing Arts Education and Training.
