We work with industry post-validation to further recognise our qualifications as high quality and career-focused; whether that be in the form of upskilling their own workforce with our qualifications or simply formally accepting the qualification as a part of the application process.

We are proud to have developed our Pearson BTEC Higher National in Performing Arts with experts from large, global organisations, including: The Performing Right Society, Drama UK, Dance UK, Equity, PLASA, the Royal Shakespeare Company, BBC, Really Useful Group, Michelle Blair Management, Belfield and Ward, Centre Parcs, the Institute of Contemporary Music Practice, LAMDA, Tring and various industry freelance specialists. The representatives are able to help design our qualifications to equip learners with skills required by industry across the world.

Michelle Blair Management supported the qualification’s registration to Ofqual.
