RSL Awards Join UK Music’s Music Academic Partnership

RSL Awards, global provider of qualifications in the creative and performing arts, today announced their membership of UK Music’s Music Academic Partnership.

UK Music is the collective voice of the UK’s world-leading music industry. They represent all sectors of the UK industry – bringing them together to collaborate, campaign, and champion music. Music Academic Partnership is a ground-breaking collaboration between educational institutions and the membership of UK Music. Its focus is on linking industry and academia more effectively to nurture collaborative projects and engage with the next generation of industry professionals.

RSL Awards’ membership with UK Music further strengthens the ties to the Music Industry that so many of their qualifications support, along with supporting the pipeline of musical talent into further and higher education.

UK Music CEO, Jamie Njoku-Goodwin said, “I am delighted to welcome RSL Awards to the Music Academic Partnership (MAP). RSL Awards have a fantastic pedigree with close to 100,000 learners studying towards their qualifications each year. From their earliest work creating the world’s first graded exam syllabus for popular music to their current suite of creative qualifications they do fantastic work not only for their students but also more widely for the music talent pipeline in the UK. Having them join MAP as it continues to grow will further strengthen both music education and the music industry as we continue to support each other through this innovative partnership.

RSL Awards CEO, Tim Bennett-Hart said, “The work of the Music Academic Partnership is essential to connect education and industry. We are very proud of our unique connection to the industries we serve. Students around the world look to RSL Awards as they learn about the UK music industry. Formalising our link to UK Music further demonstrates our commitment to ensure that the pipeline of new talent is informed by, and can inform our fantastic music industry.
