Performing Arts OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technical Introductory Diploma at Landau Forte College

Course description

Cambridge Technical is new vocational qualifications designed as a work-focused alternative to A Levels. The course is designed to give you opportunities to demonstrate and develop the practical application of knowledge and understanding in production techniques and performance craft. Students can specialise in one or more areas of Music, Drama, Dance and Technical Theatre. Although there are no written exams, students will have to demonstrate and evidence skill development, knowledge of the performing arts industry, professional practice and performance craft.

Course content

Students work collaboratively as a Production Company, taking on individual roles and responsibilities that best suit their skills and interests. Your Production Company will be required to produce public and community performances throughout the course.

Students who have already recognised their own need and aspirations to develop skills knowledge and understanding of Performing Arts and have a track record of participation in rehearsals and performances, commitment and enthusiasm, during and beyond the normal college day. A vital dimension of extension work in this course is the participation in one or more performance ensembles that meet between 4:00 and 5:00pm during the college week. You will not be able to achieve the qualification unless you have attended at least one extension group in Music, Dance, Drama or Technical Theatre. These groups meet once a week for an hour.

Entry requirements

GCSE grade 9 to 5 in Performing Arts, Drama, Music or Dance; OR a high level qualification in any of the art forms from a recognised Awarding Body OR evidence of advanced skills in Theatre, Sound or Lighting Technology

Future opportunities

A Cambridge Technical Subsidiary Diploma is a good preparation for a career in Arts and is an excellent route to employment and training as well as Higher Education.

Access to higher education is possible if you take the Level 3 qualifications because they have UCAS points.
