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

4 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English and Maths. Exceptional entry may be possible if a high level of skill in dance can be demonstrated. People over 19 without formal qualifications will be considered.
