Course description

The Performing Arts Level 3 certificate, which is equivalent in terms of UCAS points to an A Level, is a broad-based qualification that provides the opportunity for you to explore the world of Performing Arts in a practical way. You will be given the opportunity to specialise in Dance, Drama or Music through mandatory and optional units. As there is no formal written examination units are assessed through live performance, video evidence, log books and presentation folders.

Entry requirements

The usual Sixth Form entry requirements, plus an aptitude in at least one of the three main disciplines.

Future opportunities
