About the course
This is an exciting and mainly practical course. It combines practical exploration of styles and techniques in acting with related projects. As well as developing performance skills and the understanding of acting you will take part in a variety of exciting projects across the city. You will learn about the range of professional roles which support performance (production design, publicity and marketing). The course also provides an opportunity to present a performance to the public at set times during the year.
On your programme you will study for Functional Skills or GCSE English and Maths qualifications, if you do not already hold a minimum GCSE grade 4.
As part of your study programme you will be expected to take part in our weekly afternoon enrichment offer. You will be able to choose from approximately 40 options which help build skills and attributes that employers and universities are seeking in their applicants.
Will the course suit me?
Yes, if you have the confidence to perform and are creative. You will need to be considerate of others when working practically in a group.

Where can it lead?
Progression can be to any Level 3 course, but most students progress to the Acting courses.
Students may then continue to develop their skills and knowledge of drama at university or drama school. This can lead to careers in the performing arts industry (both on and off stage), but also in a wide range of other areas where artistic understanding and communication skills are important.
