Performance and Production Arts Level 2 Diploma

Print Page

Do you want to work in the performing arts? Do you want to progress your study to a Level 3 Performing Arts course? This one-year course enables you to do both by providing the perfect foundation year.

The course will develop your confidence through performances which enable you to express yourself fully.

What I'll learn

This one-year course enables you to do both by providing the perfect foundation year. This course focuses on three key areas:

  • Practical skills in the performing arts: You will be working alongside Level 3 Performing Arts students gaining the essential skills needed to thrive in this competitive industry.
  • Workskills and Employability: You will develop core skills in communication, project management and studentship. These skills will make you more employable and enable you to achieve on Level 3 if you choose to progress.
  • English and Maths: To maximise your employment and progression opportunities, you will retake English and Maths qualifications (if you did not achieve grade C or above at GCSE). In addition, the course team will mentor you at the end of the course to help you progress onto Level 3 or into employment.


How I'll learn

Students on this course will be helped to develop practical performance skills using voice and movement to communicate effectively to an audience. You will also learn the importance of team work and self-discipline and gain confidence in interacting with others. These skills can be used not just in the performing arts industry but in many other areas of work.


How I'll be assessed

You will undertake practical assignments performed in class and in public, small and large group projects and workshops.
