Learners taking this qualification will study three mandatory units:

- Arranging Music
-Composing Music
- Music Promotion
- Solo Performance
- Music Ensembles
- Music Software Skills

Future opportunities

In addition to music sector-specific courses and jobs within Music, this qualification gives learners transferable and higher order skills that are valued by higher education providers and employers.

For example, performance and communication skills, teamwork, and personal vocal/instrumental technique development support some of the skills learners need to progress to higher education, employment, self-employment or training.

The qualification is intended to carry UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as contributing to meeting admission requirements for many courses if taken alongside other qualifications as part of a two-year programme of learning, and it combines well with a large number of subjects. It will support entry to higher education courses in a very wide range of disciplines, depending on the subjects taken alongside it.
