**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 BA (Hons) Performing Arts (Top Up) programme at University Centre Grimsby offers a focus within performing arts in the study of drama, dance, and production as an actor, dancer, choreographer, producer, director, teacher, facilitator, stage manager and more with opportunities for individual expression in performance or production within these disciplines as well as collaboration. We believe in each performer having their own voice as an artist and as a creator and a collective group developing the ability to create their own opportunities is as important as the ability to work effectively and professionally and the ability to generate and sustain individual work is crucial to a performer’s continued growth and development throughout their career. Learning to perform is a continuous process of personal discovery and exploration. Professional opportunities for performers are increasingly broad and the course aims to address key concepts and skills that can be adapted to a wide range of performance media and contexts. The Programme team does not focus upon a single methodology, but provides students with the tools to develop as a professional and confident performer and individual. The University Centre Grimsby is home to the state of the art arts building including a 200-seat theatre, dance studio and rehearsal rooms. Students will have the opportunity to work in a professional environment with staff who have proven track records within the industry

Modules

In semester 1, the development element of Final Major Project provides the space and context for students to thoroughly confront and interrogate their practice and develop proposals which further develop their work from level 5, take risks and offer opportunities for experimentation. This then leads to the performance element of Final Major Project in semester 2, which takes the initial concept work and aims to continue the development into a finished professional standard performance. The Community Action Research Project module runs across both semesters; semester 1 is aimed at underpinning and fundamental preparation of the theoretical, contextual and critical aspects of the community project that will take place in semester 2 Experimental theatre will run in semester 1 will run alongside the final major project and the community action research project as the new experimental theatre skills knowledge and understanding gained in the experimental theatre module can be transferred to modules in semester 2 Performing Arts Business in semester 2 is a continuation of our FdA Performing Arts level 4 Employability module. The skills, knowledge and understanding in the business module are pivotal on the community action project and for future career prospect s

Assessment methods

The assessment approach is designed to ensure students’ knowledge and skills will be assessed in a summative manner through completed performances, workshops, community projects, programme planning documentation, dissertations, reflective evaluations, and presentations. All assessment schemes will incorporate opportunities for formative assessment and feedback via tutorials, discussions, presentations and critiques to ensure students can achieve module outcomes effectively. The pattern of assessment will involve several approaches that will require the student to produce analytical essays, research-based portfolios and to plan, construct and deliver presentations. There will also be an emphasis on producing work that displays critical thinking, problem solving and theoretical knowledge that underpins the performing arts industry and practitioner. Students will be required to produce reflective diaries/journals, production portfolios and practical assignments. Varied methods of assessment are embedded into the practical productions allowing for critical, theoretical and evaluative studies. As a creative set of disciplines, many outcomes are practical-based assessments. These will be reviewed accordingly through proposals, portfolio folders, completed performances, and presentations. These will be accompanied by evaluative statement, ensuring reflective practice is fed into the students’ creative process, allowing the students to criticise, analyse, and synthesis information and draw conclusions. All students will take part in a final major project and will be tasked with producing and performing within this showcase
