Assessment of Course

You are continually assessed throughout the course through assignment based project work. Although the course is primarily vocational and practical in nature you will need to develop and use research, presentation and written skills.

Students who successfully complete the course will be awarded a BTEC First Award in Performing Arts. This is a fully recognised national qualification equivalent to one GCSE grade A* – C.

Course Content

The BTEC First Award in Performing Arts offers an introduction to the Performing Arts Business and to the disciplines and commitment required to work in the Performing Arts industry. It is centred on the development of vocational skills in a professional environment. It also provides an excellent basis for further education and development. The classes are assignment and workshop based and will provide students with opportunities to develop a range of skills which are equally valuable in areas of employment other than the Performing Arts Industries.

You will complete two core units : Individual Showcase & Preparation, Performance and Production and one Specialist Unit : Musical Theatre Skills. Two units are marked by your teacher and one unit is externally examined.

With BTEC, you’ll be assessed throughout the course, on a range of assignments, rather than in one final exam. BTECs let you present your work in a way that suits your style and makes the best of what you produce. For example through audio and video , through journals and log books and through live performances.

If you are interested in building your confidence in drama, dance or music, if you would like to discover if performing arts is a career option for you in the future, if you like working in a professional environment creating productions and performances or if you like the sense of working in a team, communicating ideas and feelings, expressing emotions and attitudes then the BTEC First Award in Performing Arts may be the course for you.
