The building blocks for your career in the music industry 

Accreditations & Qualifications

We supply our own Noise Academy certificates at the end of each programme to congratulate students on their achievements which can be added to their portfolios. 

There are also several ways in which we can gain students credible qualifications and accreditations though our lessons. We take good pride in being able to adapt to the different modules and units available!

AQA Units Award Scheme

 lWe are super excited to announce that Noise Academy is now an AQA registered centre which means we can gain your students accreditations without requiring your setting to be registered.  Please note: This service is an add-on to our programmes and we would charge additionally due to there being a cost to register students.

The incentive that we deliver is called ‘The Unit Award Scheme’ which basically offers learners the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised with a certificate issued by AQA at the end of each programme. 

If your setting is registered, there is of course the option for us to simply fill out the summary sheets and pass over to your exams officer for submission (which comes free of charge of course)

We highly recommend this scheme as it’s a great way to gain your students on going accreditations across a mixed bag of skills, not just music!



Students today want their music studies ‘in tune’ with what they listen to and the
teachers want their pupils to be excited about their lessons. Noise Academy create
a buzz around music lessons, while still teaching the underpinning concepts of musical elements, context and language.

Noise Academy Specialises in working alongside the specification for BTEC and GCSE music, working in small groups with students and supporting them right the way through to their practical examinations. We have lots of experience delivering modules from OCR, AQA and Pearson Edexcel and we would love to join your team of peripatetic music tutors.

DID YOU KNOW? An Ofsted survey report found there’s too much focus on talking
& written exercises in school music lessons and the use of music technology was
inadequate in 1/3rd of the secondary schools inspected.
