ABRSM is the UK’s largest music education body, one of its largest music publishers and the world’s leading provider of music exams, offering assessments to more than 630,000 candidates in 93 countries every year. We support the teaching and learning of music, in partnership with the Royal Schools of Music. Our mission is to inspire achievement in music.
We are looking for a Learning & Qualifications Executive to join our Learning & Qualifications team, which is responsible for the design and content of all ABRSM’s qualifications, and for their compliance with regulatory imperatives.
The role of the Learning & Qualifications Executive is to provide essential support in the creation and development of all syllabuses and related materials. This will encompass the moderation and preparation of new examination repertoire and specimen tests for publication, as well as the editing and proofreading of copy for examination publications and ancillary support materials. The Learning & Qualifications Executive will be responsible for ensuring compliance with published technical parameters and regulatory imperatives at all times in the course of their work.
To fulfil the requirements of this role, you will need a music degree (or equivalent) and experience of working with standard and music-notation software packages, in particular Sibelius. We would also expect a broad knowledge of the music education sector, of ABRSM’s syllabuses and requirements, and evidence of a level of professional credibility that will enable you to work effectively with senior music educators and practitioners.
This is a great opportunity for the right person to utilise their skills to make an important contribution to a range of exciting new developments in our qualifications and associated products.
We anticipate that this post will be required until October 2019.
