Students on our Level 1 programme are continually assessed throughout the academic year. We understand that everybody works differently, therefore we make sure that we use a variety of assessment methods such as: Practical, class based assessments and performances, Workbooks adapted to suit the individual learner, written logs and notes made during classes. We also use video and voice recording software for those who struggle with handwritten assignments.
From September 2019 Creative Arts courses will be delivered at our new campus at Quarry Hill.
2 E's at GCSE or equivalent or if you are currently studying the new GCSE specification we would require two 2's. Candidates will be expected to display a genuine interest in Performing Arts at interview either by participating in a practical workshop led by the tutor or by talking about a key area of interest. However if you are worried you may not meet the above requirements, we would still love to hear from you!
Applications should be supported by a reference showing students to be motivated in the area of Performing Arts.
On completion of your course you will have improved your performance skills and have gained some understanding of the Creative Arts industry. You will also have developed your self-confidence, presentation skills and team-working potential, preparing you for progression onto Level 2 in Performing Arts, or further study at Level 2 in another subject specialism.
