RAD Examiners

The Royal Academy of Dance is looking to recruit examiners to service its worldwide market.

If you would like to be an RAD Examiner you will need to be a well presented professional who is discreet and impartial. You should have an in-depth knowledge of the Academy’s work with the potential to understand, demonstrate and apply the RAD examination marking criteria and definitions as stated in the Specifications.

You will hold a qualification at Level 4 or higher in dance or dance education with a substantial ballet component.

You need to be competent in written English and fluent in spoken English, with excellent communication and effective interpersonal skills, and the ability to work independently and use judgement and initiative in challenging situations. You will also need to have proficient IT skills including email and word processing, and be willing to learn how to examine using the RAD’s iPad-based marking app.

Examining can be demanding physically and mentally, but is also extremely rewarding, and provides opportunities for travel nationally and internationally.


Please send your video application and completed application form to Lillian Doleman via examinerrecruitment@rad.org.uk by 6.00pm on the closing date of Monday 10 February 2020.

Successful applicants will be invited to attend a 1-2 day audition between April – June 2020, at a location to be confirmed.

The new examiner training programmes will take place in late 2020 and throughout 2021.
