JAMES - Joint Audio Media Education Services

JAMES are very pleased to announce that their first Centre Approval has now been awarded to Deep Recording Studios, London W10.

As part of their extended accreditation schemes, JAMES have successfully created the process of Industry Centre Approval for Further Education (FE) establishments.

Deep Recording Studios are a professional APRS recording facility in West London who work very closely with partner Kensington and Chelsea College (KCC) to provide non-profit City and Guilds Sound Engineering and Music Technology Courses in the Greater London Area.

City and Guilds 7503 qualifications have also been designed in cooperation with JAMES industry professionals.

Set up to promote links between education and industry, JAMES is the education arm of the APRS (Association of Professional Recording Services), the MPG (Music Producers Guild) and the UK Screen Association. These are the principal music industry organisations representing recording and audio post-production studios, manufacturers, sound engineers and record producers. Sir George Martin is the Patron of the JAMES initiative.

JAMES considers education and training to be vital in nurturing tomorrow’s talent. JAMES HE/FE support initiatives are designed to ensure that many years of recording industry experience are not lost to future generations.

David Ward Policy Director of JAMES said “We look forward to a very fruitful relationship with Deep. Students are so lucky to have such resources and expertise available to them.”

JAMES Centre Approval indicates to employers which courses are relevant and fit for purpose whilst also providing students with an assurance of course value, resources and content.

JAMES approval is very much focussed on the environment in which the course is delivered and the professional outlook and experience of those staff who deliver the subject areas.

Designed by professionals in the industry along with academics, JAMES Accreditation is a supportive process that honours innovative course design and objectives and quality outputs.
