How will I know how I am doing?

Your tutors will closely monitor and guide you through the course to ensure you reach 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 that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) will be enrolled on either GCSE or functional skills programmes alongside their main course.

Employability

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

Work Experience

There is a work placement opportunity and learners will also participate in productions throughout the course.

If you would like to continue your studies, you can progress onto a range of higher education courses, including degrees and HNDs.

What are my career options?

There are many employment opportunities in the performing arts industry, such as acting, singing, dancing, stage management, technical aspects of production and others. Many of the skills developed on this course are transferable and relevant in a wide variety of employment fields, should you choose not to pursue a career in the performing arts industry.
