LCME/RGT has offered, for some years, a Teacher Membership Scheme. This scheme has benefitted many teachers through discounting diploma entries and music publications (amongst other things); the scheme has been undeniably popular.
However, times have moved on and needs evolve. As an examination board that is bringing assessment to more countries than ever before in its long history, LCME/RGT must take stock of the changing needs of its loyal teacher base around the globe: different regions have differing tastes and requirements, and it is imperative that LCME/RGT responds accordingly, offering new and exciting products that are always relevant.
With this in mind, we have decided to bring the Teacher Membership Scheme to a close at the end of 2022 (providing refunds of outstanding membership, where applicable). We will be announcing, however, new products, early in 2023, that aim to encourage teachers and candidates too in their respective musical paths.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have participated in the Membership Scheme. You, the teacher, represent an especially important part of the LCME/RGT family – you connect the board to the candidate, so it is vitally important that teachers are supported by resources that help to release the potential in their pupils. As in-person exams are now returning with renewed strength, please do continue to follow our website for very relevant products in LCME/RGT's suite of examinations.
