This exciting new course is a practical introduction to life and work in the Performing Arts industry. Students will explore the sector while:

  • developing skill and understanding of acting techniques
  • devising and delivering a workshop performance
  • analysing, evaluating and enhancing their skills.

The course is mostly assessed by your teacher throughout the course. This will involve rehearsal and performance work and written evidence in the form of a portfolio. The course has three components that build on each other to help put what students learn into practice as they grow in confidence.

Aim: To get a taste of what it’s like to be a professional actor across different styles.

Aim: To develop skills and techniques in acting.

Aim: To consider how people working in the Performing Arts Industry adapt their skills to a different context and put this into practice in a performance.

During the course, students see whether the industry is one they want to work in, where they could go, and gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their next steps.

After completing the course, students can continue on to further vocational and academic study at level 2 and level 3, as well as apprenticeships and traineeships.

What’s more, the transferable skills students master during their studies such as self-reflection, communication, teamwork and problem-solving will also support their progress in the present and future.
