Practical Session 2 update - Brunei Darussalam

We are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for  August – September. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

ABRSM Safeguarding Policy, Procedure and Code of Practice

 

These child protection policy and procedure materials were drawn up and last reviewed in 2017 with the assistance and advice of the NSPCC and conform to current child protection legislation and guidance.The NSPCC cannot accept responsibility for the implementation and application of the procedures. 

ABRSM examiners are required to obtain an enhanced DBS with barred list check on appointment to the practical panels and this is normally renewed every three years. Examiners are not required to take their DBS certificate with them when examining, but they should carry their ABRSM photo ID card with them at all times and should be prepared to present this on request. Examiners are only issued with photo ID cards once they have satisfied ABRSM’s safe recruitment procedures, which includes evidence of the relevant DBS check.
