As we return to our regular exams schedule post the disruption caused by COVID-19 in 2020, we encourage teachers and students to once more prepare for live examinations in 2021. If for any reason this becomes restricted again due to a new COVID-19 outbreak, students will still have the option to participate in Video exams and teachers can view the guidelines and information regarding this option on this page.
Exam preparation information for teachers in 2021.
As a result of decreased access to studio learning in 2020 RAD headquarters put together ongoing guidelines for RAD teachers to help with the planning and preparation of examinations. This includes adaptations to the format of some examinations as well as suggestions for managing social distancing in alignment with UK government guidelines. These adaptations apply until December 2021. Find out more here.
Guidance for teachers to host COVIDSafe AEC Exams
Dance studio owners and teachers entering students for AEC exams must ensure they have a COVID Safety Plan, risk assessment, or similar plan in place, in line with state government requirements. Teachers holding RAD exams in their studio are required to ensure all COVID-19 risks are identified and managed and that Government health advice is followed at all times, as well as ensuring normal child safety policies and procedures are in place.
Entry forms can be submitted by another individual (e.g. the school principal), but there must be an RAD Registered Teacher listed on the entry form who is employed or contracted by the school.
If you are interested in holding RAD exams at your studio you can advertise for free to engage a RAD Registered Teacher through our Global Jobs Board. You might also find a freelance teacher in your area advertising on our Find A Teacher page.
In Australia, Examinations are organised through Examinations and Training Manager Kathryn Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org
