This course is designed to introduce you to three areas of the industry. You will plan an event and work with your group as part of a production team.

You will create a report and action plan to evidence the process and your contribution. You will choose one of the performance disciplines to explore and develop. As par to this practical development you will keep evidence of your journey in a portfolio demonstrating your understanding of what skills you have explored and evidence of your improvement.
