RSL Awards


RSL Awards is a global, specialist awarding body in the contemporary arts, founded in London, UK in 1991. We offer a range of regulated qualifications, from graded exams in contemporary and classical music, performing arts and public speaking to industry-focused vocational qualifications up to Level 5 in various areas of the creative arts and digital industries. We also support the professional development of teachers in these sectors and hold masterclasses, workshops and seminars around the world to equip teachers with the necessary skills to prepare their students to succeed in their chosen contemporary arts area.

In 2018, RSL Awards proudly received the Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade, an award that recognises businesses that have experienced continuous growth and success in international markets. RSL Awards has a team of qualified examiners that travel worldwide to examine students in schools, colleges, universities and training centres and ensure that all learners, regardless of where they take their qualifications, undergo a fair, standardised and valid assessment experience.

RSL Awards delivers qualifications in over 60 countries and collaborates with a huge network of extracurricular training schools and international schools across the world, particularly in Asia, where we work with several existing FOBISIA schools. We attended FOBISIA’s Music Teachers’ Conference in Singapore in October 2023 and had the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with international school teachers in the region that share our passion for education in the contemporary arts.

RSL Awards was also one of the first UK awarding bodies to begin delivering online exams in response to the travel restrictions imposed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside our headquarters in London, RSL Awards also has offices in Beijing, Madrid and Delhi.
