BTEC Performing Arts Level 3 Certificate/Subsidiary Diploma at Rednock School

Course description

The course demands practical, creative and communication skills in almost equal measure. You will extend your ability to create drama and theatre, either in a performing or production role. You will also be required to write about drama and to develop your powers of analysis to become an informed critic. The course will involve taking part in drama productions, as well as studying plays, practitioners and playwrights.

The beauty of BTEC is that it allows us to provide a course that is tailored to your individual strengths. There are also possible cross overs to other subject areas. We have to follow the MANDATORY UNIT but we have the choice of 2 others for Certificate (AS equivalent) and a choice of 5 others for Subsidiary Diploma (A2 equivalent).
