RSL Awards (Rockschool) is launching new courses and exams in digital communications to add to its international curriculum of contemporary music courses.
The Creative Qualifications, which include Debut to Grade 8 in Vlogging and Podcasting are aimed at advancing the skills of creative professionals and will extend RSL’s offering to people seeking a fully rounded career in the creative sector. Devised in conjunction with the creative media course experts GoCreate Academy, the courses will include e-publications and learning materials for each grade.
RSL and GoCreate Academy have followed a similar trajectory in their pioneering approach to learning. The new courses exploit that synergy to help creative students extend their skillsets in a world where multi-tasking is a key to a productive, creative career.
The qualifications can be taught within and alongside the current curricular offerings and provide benchmarked levels recognised by the creative industries.
RSL began in 1991 when Norton York and Dr Simon Pitt pioneered the world’s first graded syllabus for popular music. It now delivers exams in over 40 countries across six continents. It was awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2018. The new Creative Qualifications suite of subjects compliments RSL’s established suite of Graded Music Exams, Teaching and Performance Diplomas, Vocational Qualifications and Performance Arts Awards.
