The blend of film acting alongside the critical foundations of stage technique will help the learner to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of what is required in the performing arts industry.
What do I need to join?
Four GCSEs at grade 3 (D) or above. Performance experience is useful but not essential; however, passion and enthusiasm for the performing arts are a must!
How will I know how I am doing?
Coursework will be set with clear, regular feedback and structured, achievable targets. Regular individual tutorials and group discussions will also take place.
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 grade C will be enrolled on either GCSE or functional skills programmes alongside their main course.

This course equips the students with all of the skills and knowledge they will need to start their journey towards becoming a professional in the industry.
