This broad programme is the perfect introduction for learners considering a career in the performing arts industry. You will develop performing arts skills at the same time as gaining self-confidence in a positive and vibrant environment that feels very different from school. Throughout the course, you will have opportunities to perform to the public. This course will cover a broad range of performing arts subjects, including drama, dance, musical theatre and stagecraft.
Learners who successfully complete the qualification and all other elements of their study programme may progress onto a Level 2 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts at the Bristol Institute of Performing Arts or another Level 2 qualification at SGS College.
Performance experience is useful but not essential; however, passion and enthusiasm for the performing arts are a must!
