What is this scheme?
Our association is the first in the UK to offer a fully digitally available scheme that ensures standards are met and guidelines are adhered to during all gradings within your club to actively prevent discrimination against any students of all ages and backgrounds and to ensure all issued grades are internationally recognised without charging our members a penny extra in the process.
When you’re ready to step up to the mark and ensure all student grades are issued in a fair environment and have those same grades ratified by our Association you simply join the scheme online via our purpose built members area, called MyBMABA.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Meet The Guidelines” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-check” animation=”fadeInDown”]We ensure high standards and tough guidelines to make your gradings fair and equal. It’s not just about protecting your students from prejudice – it’s also about preserving the sanctity of our beautiful arts by ensuring there is a strict no grade-for-cash policy in place and by making sure you have the right technology, documentation and training to make fair assessments towards passing or failing a student and have the tools to fail students confidently in a way that’s not negative but instead progressive and pro-active.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Take The Test” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-keyboard” animation=”fadeInUp”]When you feel you and your club is ready for the new program to take place simply submit yourself for assessment. It’s completely free and can be done entirely online.
We will assess your understanding of the scheme along with your clubs (or yourself, if you teach independently) abilities to deal with gradings in the correct manor.
We will also make sure you have the correct paperwork to back up gradings and know the correct procedure to ensure you’re keeping proper records.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Gain Nationally Recognised Status” icon_type=”selector” list_icon=”Defaults-trophy” animation=”fadeInDown”]When you pass the assessment you and your club will be awarded National Grading Integrity Scheme status.
You’ll receive digital certification (with optional printed certification available for a minimal fee) and you’ll be able to display a range of Grading Integrity Scheme pass marks on your website, certificates and paperwork.[/info_list_item][/info_list]
Is this scheme really free or is there hidden charges?
Will I be a member of the scheme for life?
Do I need to enter for every individual instructor in my club or just once?
Does this really help my student retention and club?
Yes – of course!
Nobody wants to be treated unfairly and everybody likes to feel safe. This scheme does that for your students. It also means your student grades are recognised and offers a professional process for your students to go through when obtaining new grades, which makes them feel comfortable and secure; a much better environment for both you and them.
