About the Course
This BTEC course is designed to provide a specialist work-related qualification.
Students studying Performing Arts (Acting) will organise events/projects which will provide them with practical understanding of the skills required to develop careers within the Performing Arts and related industries.
It provides a pathway into higher education, principally BTEC Higher Nationals and Degree courses in Performing Arts.
A GCSE qualification in Drama is not essential but a keen interest in and experience of performing is. This course is not for you if you are reluctant to perform.
Students studying Performing Arts are expected to become actively involved in extra-curricular performances and will be required to attend rehearsals out of class time.
