Grade 4 in GCSE English; a GCSE in a performance art subject is desirable, although an experience of performance and/or production is also appropriate. You need a genuine interest in performance/theatre and to be prepared to work practically at all times.
There will be a combination of internally assessed projects and assignments, together with externally assessed examined units. Grades of Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction* are awarded which are equivalent to A levels for the purpose of university entrance.
You can take this course as a One Year Certificate or a Two Year Extended Certificate.
The BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate in Performing Arts is
widely accepted and accredited by the great majority of universities as an excellent foundation for degree study. It also provides an invaluable foundation for vocational study.
As well as students studying the range of performing art subjects at many universities, over the past few years we have had students gain places at prestigious institutes such as RADA, Bristol Old Vic, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Lamda, GSA, East 15, Drama Centre, Mountview, Arts Ed, Birds, Performers, LABAN and London Contemporary Dance School.
The futures for our students are bright and exciting and future careers for ClassAction practitioners are rich and diverse as we develop the theatre makers of the future
