Course Overview

The course covers a range of disciplines within performing arts and can lead to further study and work in acting, directing, writing, publicity and arts administration.

Students will study:
  • Acting for film and TV
  • Acting techniques and practitioners
  • Voice and physical theatre
  • Classical and contemporary theatre
  • Devising

You will perform in three productions each year at our theatres and other touring venues.

Course Structure

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore, learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) in these subjects will be enrolled on either a GCSE or functional skills course alongside their main study programme.

Employability

The performing arts and leisure industry is one of the few areas in the jobs market that has sustained levels of employment and has even shown areas of growth in the present economic climate.


Work Experience

There is a work experience requirement linked to your programme and all students will complete industry-related placements.
