The BTEC Course is 1 or 2 Years, full time training (4 days per week, 33 wks per year) studying BTEC Level 3 Performing Arts. You will leave with a Diploma or Extended Diploma in Performing Arts, equivalent to between 2-3 A Levels depending on your course.


All students train in some dance and singing, but your chosen pathway will place the emphasis on training as an actor, preparing you for Drama School or University training beyond this course, and ultimately entry into the profession.
