Protecting your information is important to us

Your email won't be used for anything else outside of the panels, unless you wish to opt in to regular ABRSM communications.

Don’t want to take part anymore?

You can opt out at any time – just log in to the panel and update your settings. You can also tell us that you no longer want to take part by emailing us at [email protected].

Why wasn’t I selected?

The most likely reason is that we already have enough teachers for the panel. If you aren’t selected straight away, we'll keep your details on our register. We always look for new participants and will be in touch if a vacancy comes up.
