BTEC Course 16-18

This is a two year full time course for age 16-18 and you will leave with a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts, equivalent to up to three A-Levels. (If you are looking to study a 1 year BTEC or transfer to us for your second year, this may be possible - just contact us and we'd be happy to discuss your specific needs.)

You have the option of choosing between three pathways:

  • Acting

  • Dance

  • Musical Theatre

Performances take place each term in our theatre, many of which are open to the public. Assessments all take place internally, though some may be externally assessed or moderated.

If you have already studied A-Levels or BTEC Level 3 and are looking to pursue a career in the performing arts, you may prefer our 1 year Professional Foundation Course.
