This course is designed to develop your potential for working in the theatre industry and prepare for future qualifications. You will cover a wide range of technical skills, contextual related activities and be given the opportunity to be involved in technically supporting public performances. The method of learning is by a mixture of both tutor led and practical sessions. If you have not yet achieved a Grade 4 (C) in GCSE English and Mathematics, you will also be working towards these qualifications as part of your study programme and there will also be opportunities to work with local theatres back stage and front of house, and to go on visits to shows either locally or nationally as part of your studies.
