03.03.2022: UAL Awarding Body’s new Teach Inspire Create podcast explores how different experiences can influence more inclusive and diverse ways of teaching. UAL Awarding Body’s Marketing and Communications Officer Isolde Allen explains more.
UAL Awarding Body designs and awards creative qualifications that empower and inspire educators to help students reach their potential. Our qualifications have high retention and achievement rates because they are flexible, responsive, and relevant to industry needs, and facilitate student progression.
The Teach Inspire Create Podcast is just one strand of our support offer to creative educators in the UK and internationally. Through stimulating conversations based around the three themes of teaching, inspiring and creating, the podcast profiles inspirational industry leaders who are not only experts within their creative fields, but who actively drive change and innovation.
Of eight guests this series, two come from backgrounds in the music industry. In Episode 2, we speak to opera vocalist Rob Gildon about the value of an open mindset, and in Episode 6 (release date: March 15th), we sit down with bassist Jesse Quin from Keane, to unpack whether education really prepares students for the music industry.
The podcast’s host Matt Moseley said:
“Chatting with both Rob and Jesse was insightful and surprising in equal measures. Their journeys into successful careers in music are very different. One had a classical training and the other less conventional.
“However, essential ingredients of curiosity, collaboration, and resilience have brought them to where they are today. They both share a sense of generosity and a belief in the importance of making music accessible to all.
For anyone with their heart set on a career in the music industry, this podcast is essential listening.”
