  • 3 Year Musical Theatre Course Qualification

    The demand on the performer is ever increasing as the performance Industry grows. There is a great need for Musical Theatre students who have been well trained in dance, singing and acting. We aim to help you achieve this. The stage is continually dominated by musicals.

    The Academy offers professional training from teachers who have and still are performing professionally. The emphasis is put on all disciplines equally to make you the all round performer.

    The 3 year Musical Theatre Course leads to a qualification with Trinity Guildhall College London. Level 4 – Level 6 Qualifications are tailor made to suit the level required of the student. The Associate performer qualification (A.T.C.L.) which is Level 4 on the National framework or the first year degree level study AND/OR The Licentiate performer qualification (L.T.C.L) which is Level 6 on the National Framework or the final year of an undergraduate degree. These are available in Musical Theatre and/or Speech and Drama.  

    In addition to this we offer Btec Level 3 extended diplomas in Musical Theatre for school leavers 16 plus (fully fundable) and also HNC and HND (Level 4 and 5) for those that have already completed A Levels or Btec Level 3s.  Student finance is available for the Higher Education courses.    There is also the option to top up your course to a BA Hons.   

    The 3 Year Musical Theatre Course is full time and intensive. At the end of the three years each graduate will have achieved a balanced and complete all round training, and be ready to go out and perform professionally with confidence and in a style all of their own.

  • At EPA we offer an unique course where you are also able to gain a Btec Level 3 extended diploma qualification in Musical Theatre - thus cutting out a 2 year Btec training course and incorporating them into the full time 3 year Musical Theatre Course whilst studying at Level 6 standard. Resulting in 3 years training as opposed to studying a btec qualification and then moving onto a 3 year course. We are able to offer this in conjunction with Buxton and Leek College. Moving on from this we are now pleased to be able to offer our brand new innovative Year Zero Dance. This is ran in conjunction with The University of Derby and is again integrated within the 3 year course in the 3rd year of training.

    There are also options upon graduation to higher eduction at The University of Derby in many other areas of the Performing Arts within the BA Hons degree course. Our 3rd year of training is linked to UCAS and Student Finance is available  We also offer career development loans.  

    NEW FROM SEPTEMBER 2018  we also are able to offer HNC and HND which are both available with full student finance.  The additional 20 hours on top of the HNC and HND courses and also for the Btec Level 3 (Making 36 hour a week training course) is also available with scholarships. 

    For both of these courses if you initially give us a call or complete our contact information we will be able to assist you further.  

    Teacher training qualifications in all 3 disciplines are also available within the course in the relevant examination bodies to enable the student to graduate as a fully qualified Performing Arts tutor.
