Performing Arts and Production Arts - Level 3 Extended Diploma
This course offers you the opportunity to study a range of performing arts techniques in the first year, before going on to specialise in either acting in the second year. Projects and performances both in and outside of the college will allow you to focus on the performance demands of acting. There will be opportunities to experience acting styles such as improvisation and create your own pieces, showcasing your work in performances.
Although the emphasis is on practical and performance work you will need to complete written assignments and develop your skills as an informed and reflective practitioner through evaluative logbooks and rehearsal diaries. You will learn to evaluate and comment critically on both professional work and your own creative practice, gaining insight into the wider performing arts industry through contextual and industry studies.
You will be working on industry projects where some students will engage with external clients and companies, developing your experience in the world of work and performance.
