The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA), Australia, has confirmed that all Trinity music and performing arts qualifications above Grade 4 now contribute credits towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
On 1 June 2022, the QCAA confirmed a list of Trinity music and performing arts qualifications as acceptable for credit on the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The QCE is Queensland's senior secondary schooling qualification that provides evidence of senior schooling achievements. This recognition of Trinity qualifications applies to all schools in the Australian State of Queensland and is valid until 2027.
Trinity College London is a leading international exam board, publisher, and independent education charity founded in 1872 which provides assessments around the world. It specialises in the assessment of communicative and performance skills covering music, drama, combined arts and English language.
Trinity exams are taken by more than 850,000 candidates in more than 60 countries including Australia, where Trinity was the first examination board to assess candidates in music. Trinity proudly supports Australian teachers and students, as well as working closely with schools and colleges. Through syllabus innovation, Trinity is keen to promote the work of Australian composers, writers and dramatists.
“We are delighted that Trinity performance qualifications are valid for QCAA credit, and sincerely hope that by preparing for and taking Trinity music and performance exams, secondary school students will develop their own unique skills as performers both inside and outside of Queensland’s classrooms.”
Mercedes Hernandez, Director of International Recognition
