If you are part of the new grading system for GCSE we would see Grades 3 as the equivalent of a Grade D in this offer.
4 D's at GCSE or equivalent. Plus a well-established interest in the performing arts. We ask you to take part in an interview and audition process.
Practical classes and tutorials are delivered over three days of the week, leaving plenty of study-time to complete supporting research and written tasks. Units are delivered through practical performance projects which are assessed through an on-going monitoring of progress with feedback and at the end of each semester these are supported by written tasks. You will also have two externally assessed units; one practical based and one online. Attendance and application to all areas is essential for successful completion.
This Level 2 qualification is assessed via a combination of internal assessment, where tasks are set and marked by your tutors, and external assessment which may include a written exam/test.
