Unconditional Places to Full-Time Applicants

Due to the uncertainty around how long the Covid-19 outbreak will last, it has been agreed for the immediate future that we will be offering unconditional places to full-time (not University Level) applicants who apply to SGS College.

Once you apply for your course, you will receive a communication offering you a place.

You just need to accept the offer, if you wish to.

We will then be in touch to discuss the offer once the Covid-19 risk reduces.

This broad programme is the perfect introduction for learners considering a career in the performing arts industry. You will develop performing arts skills whilst 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.

What do I need to join?

No qualifications are necessary for this course, but enthusiasm is a must!

How will I know how I am doing?

Your tutors will closely monitor and guide you through the course to ensure you are reaching your potential. You will have personal, one-to-one tutorials to review progress regularly.

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore, learners who do not yet have a GCSE will be enrolled on either GCSE or functional skills programmes alongside their main course.


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 are no specific opportunities at this level, but learners participate in our two professional-standard theatre productions.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete the qualification and all other elements of their study programme may progress onto the Level 2 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts or another Level 2 qualification at SGS.

What are my career options?

Learners can progress onto higher-level courses, which could lead to careers in theatre, film, video and TV production, as well as career opportunities in other areas of employment.
