Training Opportunity

Extended Diploma Performing Arts

Our two-year course is aimed at vocational young people who are developing a career as a professional Actor/Musical Theatre performer or creative practitioner.

Based at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell - we have outstanding facilities including three working theatres.

We are also looking for budding Directors, Choreographers and Producers who want the chance to get hands-on with shows. Giving you the opportunity to develop your skills with experienced industry professionals (including West End choreographers, London directors and producers), you will build on your knowledge of performance techniques with a view of showcasing your skills at live and recorded performances and work towards setting targets and achieving goals.

You will work towards an Extended Diploma from either Btec or RSL, and four graded qualifications over the two years (Trinity, LAMDA and or RSL).

Our blended course will help to develop the skills required for Musical Theatre, TV and Theatre Acting. You will explore techniques through group and solo work and sharing of dynamic and creative ideas which will ultimately prepare you for auditions and the professional industry. All students have weekly career clinics and mentoring. We also offer a number of solo classes in dance, singing and acting to support exam work.

We have a maximum of 20 in each year group. Entry is by audition and meeting other academic criteria.

Recent graduates have gone on to schools including Urdang, Mountview, Royal Central, Chichester, Italia Conti and many more.
