Love to play music, act, sing or just be on a stage?
Level 2 Performance Skills is great preparation for study at Level 3 and beyond: in music, acting or musical theatre. If you don't have the Level 2 qualifications or vocational experience necessary for direct entry to Level 3, this programme is ideal.
The main focus is on performing, and you can explore ensemble musicianship, movement, acting, singing and musical theatre. You'll work with other students on a range of performance projects in college and in local public venues, and be involved in a production at the end of the course.
We'll also make sure that you leave with everything you need to be successful in further study or in work. This means you'll spend time working on wider employment skills and on academic development (including English and maths). You'll also explore how the performing arts industry works.
This course will get you ready for the Level 3 entertainment industry courses at Gateshead College, and from there you could progress to our higher education programmes. Employment opportunities may be available in the theatre, television or film industries.
Main vocational qualification: NCFE Level 2 Diploma in Performance Skills
