Walk into the spotlight… with a career in Performing Arts

If you’re serious about a career in Performing Arts, then you can never start training and studying too soon. Specialising at age 16 is a very good option if you want to work in the Performing Arts, and a 2-year full-time vocational course will offer you a wide range of education and training. You will develop a broad spectrum of understanding across the industry as well as honing and developing your training. The skills you gain from your vocational Performing Arts course will provide you with transferable skills, so you will be ready to apply for a range of jobs in the future.

The course is equivalent to 3 A Levels and carries UCAS points for university entrance. Please remember, a vocational course is not the easier option and there are written elements to the course. It is therefore really important that you have achieved a grade C or above in GCSE English or equivalent.

Q: What is a Performing Arts course usually made up of? 

A: The course will cover technical training in voice, movement and acting, and also pure theory units like Performing Arts Business.  The emphasis is on practical training but you will have to write too.  Some courses will focus more on Musical Theatre (Dance, Acting & Singing). Qualifications are made up of 18 units and are awarded by prestigious awarding bodies, including BTEC, UAL, and OCR.
