LEAD staff will be responsible for delivery and managing the quality assurance of the BTEC education programme. This will ensure learners maximise their true potential as we work closely with our industry professionals. We’ll ensure all learners receive high level performing arts training (approx 20 hour per week on BTEC) and work towards achieving the highest grades possible.
Study programme content:
Learners will be required to audition for this education programme and must achieve 5 GCSEs grade 4 and above (including maths and English). If successful at audition, learners will simply apply and enrol with us and at our education partner/s.
As part of this BTEC level 3, learners will be assessed through practical performances, rehearsals, training sessions and assignments. This BTEC level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts Practice will allow learners to progress onto university, audition/apply to specialist, advanced performing arts schools and/or gain employment directly into the industry.
Past learners have successfully auditioned to advanced training schools such as Urdang, Laine, Addict, Bird, Rambert, Northern Ballet, ArtsEd, Wilkes, and many more. Other students have gained employment directly into the industry including TV work, touring shows, cruise ships and modelling contracts.
