HIS is proud to partner with the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) to offer the LAMDA awards. LAMDA is one of the UK's oldest and most respected awarding bodies. They have provided practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 130 years. During this time, the qualifications have helped hundreds of thousands of candidates of all ages and abilities develop confidence in communication and lifelong skills valuable in any chosen career.
LAMDA examinations are designed to improve standards in communication through spoken word and to support the individual's creative, intellectual and social development as a whole. LAMDA examinations are about achievement and provide an opportunity to develop essential life skills, such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly. Please look at LAMDA's website for more information: https://www.lamda.ac.uk/our-exams.
Preparation for examinations is offered for Grades 1-8 in all performance and communication options, and no prior experience is necessary. The LAMDA teacher will decide which grade and exam is suitable for a student and will build on any previous examinations taken or relevant acting experience. UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) points are attached to Level 3 qualifications - Grades 6, 7, and 8 are awarded bronze, silver and gold medals, respectively.
