Trinity Diplomas are your first step into professional musicianship, taking candidates on their next steps beyond graded examinations. Available for a huge range of instruments, they help take candidates on a structured pathway — from ATCL at Level 4, through to LTCL at Level 6 and FTCL at Level 7 — into a whole range of music careers. These include professional performance, teaching and into further study in the creative arts. Diplomas also give you professional recognition with letters after your name, making them a widely-recognised qualification.
