We are constantly reviewing our culture and how it aligns with the need for change in pre-professional music training and the music industry as a whole.

If you’d like to explore in more detail what we’re doing to listen, learn and implement measures that will strengthen our community and deliver sustainable cultural change, these reports provide further insight.

Twice a year our Dean of Students, Elizabeth Kenny, provides an report on the diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging work being done across the Academy. Read the updates:

In 2020, we invited Blueprint for All, a Black-led social enterprise consultancy, to conduct a thorough audit of all our policies and procedures. The results will help us to shape the Academy’s future.

We also commissioned research in 2018/19 on widening access in music education. The results will be published here soon.
