Rehearsal and performance are, of course, fundamental to the way in which the units are structured. In addition there will be research, discussion, directing, role-play and writing.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is made in a number of ways: the contribution that students make in rehearsal is noted by the teachers on a lesson by lesson basis; students record progress in a logbook which is formally assessed at the end of a unit; and of course, each performance is recorded by video and assessed by the teacher.

Entry requirements

Students have usually completed Level 2 BTEC or GCSE courses in the field of performing arts, although this is not essential. Commitment, self-discipline, a willingness to work as a team and take on the challenge of performance work at an advanced level is fundamental to success.
