The BTEC National Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts (Musical Theatre) develops broad skills, knowledge and understanding. This is a vocational qualification which will make demands on the students body and brain. We mix this valuable qualification with a focus on training for further education and auditions in musical theatre.
In Year 1 students are required to complete seven assignments. Students will be focusing on Singing, Acting and Dance.
In Year 2 students are required to complete six assignments. Students will also develop skills by devising performance work and working together as a theatre company to rehearse, organise and promote performances.
The course is fully government funded for 16 -18 year olds. Entry requirements are five grade Cs at GCSE, or equivalent, or a Level 2 qualification.
Students can then progress to the Professional Year if they wish.
