The validation process ensures that course providers of the Professional Performing Arts Diplomas offer the required tuition, support and assessment mechanisms to enable students to attain the high levels of skill required to achieve the Diplomas.
The three stage validation process provides scrutiny and analysis of all aspects of course provision including tuition, staffing, timetables, premises, pastoral care and student attainment levels in order to ensure that courses of study meet the standards required for the diplomas.
Note: a course must have had graduating students in previous years in order to provide the graduate employment data necessary for validation.
Please see the Validation Requirements for full details of the three stage process.
