RSL’s Vocational Qualifications added to DfE's Performance Tables for 2018

We are pleased to announce that RSL Vocational Qualifications in Music and Performing Arts are DfE Performance Tables approved for 2018 (first teaching September 2016).

The updated Performance Tables published on Thursday 21st April feature 13 RSL Qualifications in total across Levels 1-3 in the categories of Technical Award, Technical Certificate and Tech Level. RSL’s Music and Performing Arts Qualifications are one of the only qualifications to feature on the updated tables. From September 2016, RSL’s Creative and Performing Arts Qualifications will take their place alongside the established market leading Music Practitioners Qualifications as the first port of call for schools and colleges wishing to deliver industry relevant, practical qualifications that contribute to school achievement.  RSL prides itself on both industry relevance and academic rigour and we are delighted that the Department for Education concur that our qualifications offer both.  Patrick Healy – Head of Vocational Qualifications at RSL
