What I'll learn
During the first year of the programme, students will work towards a Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts. Successful students will be able to progress onto the second year of the programme where they will work towards either a Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts (equivalent to three A-levels).
The opportunity to work with Reading Rep will improve your chances of getting into drama school, and enhance your CV. It will also provide you with references from professional practitioners.
You will be in an excellent position to progress to a job in the industry (creative, production, community, administration) at an introductory level. Alternatively, you could undertake a Foundation Degree or a degree-level course at university.
How I'll learn
You will learn what it takes to work in the theatre industry. You will be working with professionals and treated as professionals. There are many careers in the performing arts; not just onstage but back stage too.
You will learn to develop your voice and speech, your body and movement, to enhance your creativity and succeed in any avenue you choose to pursue. You will also train with a professional company on various productions throughout the year, not just using our industry-standard facilities, but in the community too.
You will see, experience, and shadow theatre professionals at work.
How I'll be assessed
You won’t be learning in a classroom, you will be working as a professional company of artists and staging numerous productions open to the public.
