This webinar is an introduction to Trinity College London’s new Awards and Certificates in Musical Development—industry-first, regulated qualifications for children, young people and adults with learning difficulties across the whole spectrum of abilities and needs. Designed to formally accredit the Sounds of Intent Framework of Musical Development, these new qualifications represent the first fully-inclusive, regulated qualifications for music learners.

The Awards and Certificates in Musical Development have been designed for any music setting: for learners working individually, in the classroom or any other music-making context. Each learner’s musical achievements can be recognised through any type of music-making activity, and learners are assessed through a process of ongoing observation within their sessions by their music leader. The qualifications are fully regulated, and at the higher levels, carry UCAS points.

Join Adam Ockelford, Professor of Music at the University of Roehampton and Chair of Sounds of Intent, and Francesca Christmas, Director of Music at Trinity College London to discover how the framework and qualifications can be used in any context – from special educational needs settings to mainstream – and how you can get involved.
