Subject

Performing arts

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.**

The FdA in Performing Arts aims to provide a dynamic, exciting and flexible learning experience for its students whilst providing industry-standard skills. Academically, it will develop students’ abilities to contextualise their learning historically, culturally and self-reflectively and students will be encouraged to showcase their work at every opportunity.
