Royal Academy of Dance

The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations. It was founded in 1920 to ensure high standards of ballet training in the UK. Today the RAD operates in approximately 75 countries, with over 13,000 members worldwide.

Each year, around 1,000 students enrol on one of the RAD Faculty of Education’s dance teacher training programmes, and more than 235,000 candidates are entered for examinations.

The challenge

Royal Academy of Dance

The Royal Academy of Dance first approached Advanced Secure in 2009 and asked them to deliver a secure certificate printing system that fitted the organisation’s reputation as a global leader in dance education and training.

To date, we have worked in conjunction with the RAD to produce their full suite of awarding documents and also supply them with our Digital Certificates solution, to streamline and secure their awarding operation globally.
