Potential New Adjudicators

The purpose of our adjudicators is to educate and inspire. We are looking for skilled adjudicators who are able to inspire greater appreciation of the work being performed, both for the performer and audience alike.

By accepting only the highest quality adjudicators onto our panel we aim to raise the standards of amateur performers attending our festivals. All performers should leave with a written/verbal assessment of their performance and a great sense of achievement.

How to join our panel of Adjudicators

The Federation seeks the highest calibre, standards and integrity in its adjudicator members. This is by a rigorous selection process involving application, short-listing and attendance at an Assessment Day. This may be followed by shadowing visits in the field and a final assessment. It is important to understand that we do not supply training and there is no guarantee that you will be successful. A potential adjudicator should therefore be well qualified and have experience of teaching a variety of genres to an advanced level before applying.

Applications are welcome from people of all ages and backgrounds.

Before commencing your application we recommend that you read our person specification which outlines the skills, qualities and experience that we are looking for.
