About this course

Full-time | 2020

This dynamic course will push you to your maximum in order for you to reach your full potential. Our course focuses on vocational training and equal sessions of Acting, Singing and Dance will be mandatory. You will also be expanding your knowledge by exploring new topics with units such as ‘Acting for Camera’, ‘Audition Preparation’, ‘Ballet’ and ‘Singing Repertoire’ as well as academic sessions in ‘Working in the Performing Arts Industry’ and ‘Professional Development’.

You will also be given many opportunities to show your progression by participating in performance projects both in-house at our resident Sue Townsend Theatre and out in the community throughout the year. Leicester has some excellent links to the professional industry and we have a strong working relationship with Curve Theatre. We are often invited to watch productions, meet the cast and creative teams, as well as to watch working rehearsals and open dress runs, all of which will enhance your knowledge and give you a clear insight as to how a professional production is produced.

You will have the opportunity to graduate with a Higher National Certificate after successful completion year 1 or continue to achieve a Higher National Diploma over 2 years.

Modules

The Higher National Certificate (HNC) will be delivered through professional projects, skills-based classes, creative workshops and rehearsals. The HNC (General Pathway) will remain purposefully broad to ensure maximum employability for those students with interests in acting, singing, dance and movement. Students will gain a wide range of performing arts knowledge tied to practical skills gained in research, self-study, directed study and workplace scenarios. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor.

In addition to the core units of the performing arts industry and professional development, you can expect to study units such as acting 1, devising theatre and performance, singing 1, Jazz Dance, voice and speech for actors, movement.

Assessment methods

The work is assessed in a variety of ways. Practical assessments take the form of studio/theatre-based performance. In addition to practical work, students are assessed via presentations and written coursework.
