Course summary

Overview

This course is subject to validation. You can still apply for this course while it is being approved.

In response to the present employment climate within the Performing Arts sector, it is important for students to recognise that to navigate a successful career which is both sustainable and has longevity requires adaption and a multifaceted approach. Through the proposed third year Top Up programme, students will have the opportunity to audit and evaluate their own skills set in relation to the myriad of employment opportunities available to them.

At level six, students will be encouraged to expand their awareness of the diverse nature of the Performing Arts Sector. The proposed structure will enable students to create their own bespoke learning experience, crossing performance specialisms, allowing for extended diversity to their individual career development. With units designed specifically to facilitate student’s growth as emerging practitioners, critical analysis within a plural context of current industry expectations will allow students to navigate their own unique career path. Theoretical scrutiny of underpinning theories, approaches and contextual factors which have influenced the art form, will support personal lines of enquiry and the critical evaluation of their own adaptability and entrepreneurial attitude for sustainable employment.
