Graded Qualifications Alliance

A note to parents students and teachers:

The Graded Qualifications Alliance is the awarding arm of the British Theatre Dance Association.

In effect this means that all regulated qualifications are awarded by the Graded Qualifications Alliance although the programmes that lead to those qualifications are devised and published by the British Theatre Dance Association.

In the event that you need to search qualification lists published by the government and other such bodies you will need to search for GQAL rather than BTDA in order to locate the qualification you have achieved.
