Did you know that the UK music industry is worth over £5.2 billion? The industry brings enjoyment to millions globally and the UK is the largest music market in Europe.

With the industry continuing to grow, it comes as no surprise that students are seeking qualifications that can best prepare them for Higher Education (HE) at leading arts universities or equip them with the relevant skills to help elevate their employability. With this in mind, UAL Awarding Body is proud to be hosting Creating music industry practitioners at Wallacespace Clerkenwell, London.

Get to hear from tutors and centres that have successfully planned and delivered our suite of Music Performance and Production qualifications using inspiring and motivational methods that equip students with the skills and knowledge to enhance their employability in the industry or progress to Higher Education.

Introduced by Music Performance and Production Chief Examiner, Andy Sankey, and lead by tutors Luke Branch, South Essex College, and Nicolas Sykes, Bradford College, you will learn about the course units, year planning, unit delivery and have the opportunity to discuss these elements with our qualification experts.

Hear from some of our students and their experiences as they discuss the benefits and contemporary nature of these specialist courses along with how these qualifications helped prepare them for progression to aligned HE courses.
