Assessment will be through internal assessments. Assessment is generally done through periodic coursework, projects and set tasks.
The course runs at our new Quarry Hill campus
Students should have a minimum of four 3s at GCSE including English Language or maths.
Music practical and theory: you should play your instrument (or sing) at around grade 3 level and should have a good understanding of music theory.
In addition to the above, you will be required to attend a performance audition during which you will be asked to play two contrasting pieces on your main instrument, of the genre in which you wish to play in ensembles. You will also sit a short theory paper.
This qualification is primarily designed to support progression to employment or apprenticeships in the music and related industries.
A significant proportion of recruitment in the creative sector is at higher levels and you may wish to progress to further learning. When studied as part of a full study programme, typically alongside maths and/or English, the qualification will prepare you for entry to BTEC Level 3 Nationals in Music, which will support entry to a further range of careers in the sector.
