New Qualifications in Art and Design

May 30, 2024

RSL Awards is a leading qualifications awarding organisation for creative subjects. We offer Level 1-3 qualifications in Music, Performing Arts, Digital Media and most recently Art & Design.

Government reform of Level 3 qualifications mean that from 2026 there will only be A Levels, T Levels and Alternative Academic qualifications available to students, and we are determined to be able to offer a practical pathway in to HE across our subject areas. To this end, we have designed new qualification specifications for submission to Department of Education but we need to gather HE support to affirm that what we have designed will provide an acceptable pathway for students in to HE.

We are asking members of CHEAD if they will review our proposals and if they believe they are robust, to sign a letter affirming this. We’d be delighted to compensate anyone for the time this will take, and with our video walkthroughs this shouldn’t take too long.

Please get in touch with Patrick Healy at RSL Awards if you are willing to assist with this and he can supply further details.
