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.


Learn more about Performing Arts at SGS College


This inspiring programme will develop your performance skills and understanding of the performing arts industry. You will develop your knowledge and skills through a range of performance-based projects, accompanied by demonstrations and guidance from your industry-experienced tutors. Learners are given opportunities to perform for the public and local schools throughout the year.

You will study nine units covering a variety of acting, musical, performing and dance skills. This will lead to a final group project at the end of the year.

What do I need to join?

4 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.


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. This course is very much rooted in the local community, and the day-to-day delivery involves networking and marketing with possible future employers.

Work Experience

You will gain work experience, engaging with the local community in performing and production roles.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete the qualification, and all other elements of their study programme, may progress onto a Level 3 qualification within the Performing Arts department or the wider College.

What are my career options?

Learners can progress onto higher-level courses, which could lead to a career in theatre, film, video and TV production, events management, sales and performance coaching.
