Warrington & Vale Royal College launches new level 4 course for aspiring performing arts professionals

Warrington & Vale Royal College is delighted to announce a new addition to its line-up of Performing Arts courses: The University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 4 Diploma in Performance.

UAL Level 4 Diploma in Performance, starting September 2024.

For those considering a career in the exciting performing arts sector, this course is the perfect choice. Students will be immersed in a dynamic programme designed to provide a comprehensive foundation in various aspects of performing arts including musical theatre, contemporary and classical acting, and devised performance.

Throughout the duration of the course, students will experience a holistic approach to performing arts education, fostering collaboration with industry experts and nurturing their creative talents. This involves participating in not one but four live performance projects in front of an audience, providing students with plenty of opportunity to continuously hone their craft and develop their skills.

Alongside practical training, students will also explore several theoretical aspects such as the history of performing arts compared to modern practices, analysing their individual progress and development, and understanding the cultural and social significance of various art forms.

Students choosing to study this course at Warrington & Vale Royal College will benefit from learning in its Advanced Creative & Digital Skills (ACDS) Academy, equipped with a newly-refurbished 162 seat theatre, two bespoke studios for singing, acting, and dancing, as well as a TV studio kitted-out with the latest technology. They’ll also be guided by a faculty of seasoned professionals who have a wealth of knowledge, gained from years of first-hand industry experience, to share.

Furthermore, students will get to enjoy a range of guest lectures, bespoke workshops and collaborative projects with close employer partners of the ACDS Academy, including local organisation Culture Warrington and the more nationally recognised Liverpool Empire Theatre. These enriched experiences contribute to making students rounded and polished professionals ready to embark on their exciting careers.

Upon completion of the course, students will be equipped with a versatile skillset, opening doors to diverse career pathways in theatre, film, television, voice acting, directing, or even producing. Previous UAL Level 4 Diploma in Performance students have progressed to successful careers with the likes of Disney, Sky TV and on London’s West End!

If you are set to complete a level 3 qualification such as a T Level, BTEC or A Level this year and are considering your next theatrical step – look no further! This course is the perfect springboard into a career in this exciting, thriving sector. It’s also a great choice for adult students looking to return to education and pursue a new career.
