-Posted on 06.06.2018

It was announced today that the Royal Academy of Music has been rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the government assessment of the quality of teaching in the higher education sector. This is the second time the Academy has received the award since the first results in 2017. The award is now valid for up to three years.

The report findings state that Academy students achieve ‘consistently outstanding outcomes’ and ‘exceptionally high rates of progression to employment and highly skilled employment or further study’ that are above the benchmark rate. The Academy was found to provide ‘an exceptional range of enrichment activities and external collaborative projects that enhance educational and professional development’.

The Academy’s commitment to providing students with the highest quality of musical training, including the use of high-quality teaching staff and visiting artists to support and challenge students was noted in the report. It also praised the Academy’s ‘outstanding facilities’ and ‘very high rates of retention and progression.’

Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, the Academy’s Principal, said: ‘We are delighted to have been recognised, once again, for our work in delivering high-level artistic training to prepare students for careers at the top of an ever-expanding and international music profession. We are particularly pleased that TEF has recognised our strong record of students’ progression to employment, where they go on to shape and lead the industry.’
