Specialist vocational qualifications are highly valued by industry and higher education. They encourage and stimulate students’ achievement through practical learning and forms of assessment based on applied knowledge and understanding of the relevant subject area.

Vocational courses provide considerable opportunities for teamwork and in-depth study based upon specialist activities.

Level 3 vocational courses are broadly equivalent to 3 A levels in the National Qualification Framework and is accepted for university entry via the UCAS points system.

We currently offer vocational pathway options in:

  • CREATIVE ARTS  (Technical Theatre Arts, Visual Art and Design)
  • DIGITAL ARTS (TV and Radio Production, Games Development and New Media)
  • PERFORMING ARTS  (Dance, Acting, Music, Music Technology or Musical Theatre)

As well as the principal vocational pathway, students are encouraged to take additional forms of accreditation. These may be academic A or AS Levels or pathway accreditations such as LAMDA or IDTA.

Personal development is of major importance and students have lessons in futures, RE, PSHE, careers and citizenship.
