Headteacher: Mrs B Rogers CBE

BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate in Performing Arts

This is an exciting but competitive two year course with a limited number of places.

The course specialises in a practical approach and learners will be expected to perform in a wide range of theatre.

Modules include:

Acting, the developments of Drama and the Performing Arts Production process.

As part of this course, students will also be given the opportunity to participate in theatre visits and workshops.

The BTEC qualification is the equivalent of two GCSEs and choosing this option will cover one option block.

Assessment will be through live and recorded performance with written evidence such as rehearsal logs and written evaluation.

The course will culminate in a production unit in which the learners will work independently forming their own Theatre Company and marketing, staging and performing in a public performance.

The course offers an exciting opportunity to students with enthusiasm for drama, self-discipline and a good group ethos. Students need strong commitment to this subject as extra-curricular rehearsal will be essential.
