JAMES 'OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT' AWARD WINNER OFFERS HIS THANKS - IT MAKES IT ALL WORTHWHILE!
December 2021

I have graduated this summer from the BSc Audio Technology course at Glasgow Caledonian University. I have recently been told I was put forward for the JAMES-sponsored Outstanding Achievement award, and am writing today to express my gratitude both for being selected, and for your generosity in supporting it. This is a prestigious award and one that many of my fellow classmates are equally deserving of – it means a great deal to me to have been chosen for it and I am both honoured and thankful.

The JAMES stamp of approval was one of the reasons I applied to the Audio Technology course in the first place, and to have my own JAMES stamp of approval is something I would never have imagined; thank you. The past four years on the Audio Technology course have challenged me to grow as a person and as an audio professional, and while I am proud to have marked that growth with a First Class degree, this honour has truly been the capstone for my time at GCU.

As I move into further education and beyond into the wider world of work, this award will serve to remind me of the faith others have placed in me. I will strive to continue to be deserving of that faith.

With sincere thanks, Jake

UK'S FUTURE MUSIC 'TALENT PIPELINE' AT RISK FROM A-LEVEL MUSIC DECLINE
August 2021
A-level music education provided by state schools could completely disappear by 2033 as a result of an alarming year-on-year decline, new research suggests.

Falling access to the music qualifications, accelerated by cuts in local and central government funding in recent years, has also led to the gap between state and independent music education provision widening, according to work undertaken by Dr Adam Whittaker and Professor Martin Fautley at Birmingham City University.
