Accreditations and Recognitions

LAMDA has been recognised as an awarding organisation by Ofqual, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations in England, and the corresponding regulatory authorities in Wales (DfES) and Northern Ireland (CCEA).

There are many benefits to being a recognised awarding organisation with Ofqual:

  • it gives confidence to students and employers that the qualifications are delivered by an organisation whose integrity, resources and competence have been independently checked
  • it informs those who use the awarding organisation's qualifications – students, schools, employers etc. – that the qualifications are monitored and are of the advertised standard and level
  • if the awarding organisation develops qualifications for specific trades or industries, it gives assurance that the qualification is suitable for those specific or specialist needs 
  • it allows the awarding organisation's qualifications to be transferred throughout Europe as part of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and can enhance the standing of the awarding organisation's qualifications in countries outside Europe.

LAMDA offers regulated qualifications in the following subjects and pathways:

In addition to its recognised graded examinations, Certificate in Speech and Drama and Performance Studies (PCertLAM) and Diploma in Communication Speech and Drama Education (LSDE), LAMDA offers a range of unregulated qualifications. These are the Introductory suite of qualifications and the Group examinations. Although these have been constructed using the same detail and integrity as LAMDA’s other qualifications, they are not regulated by Ofqual and are therefore not eligible for funding. Internationally, LAMDA Examinations is recognised by the National Qualifications Association of Ireland (NQAI) and is aligned with the National Framework for Qualifications (NFQ). In Australia, LAMDA Examinations is recognised by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) of Western Australia.
