At Paston we have a long history of teaching BTECs in Performing Arts. The Level 3 National Diploma is a two- year course equivalent to two A levels and its purpose is to allow you to develop the specialist knowledge, understanding and skills required by the performing arts industry and to provide a career progression to higher education and professional programmes. 

The course uses a professional training approach and consists of 6 lessons per week in which you will explore a range of performance skills, such as the key principles of acting, dance techniques, different styles of theatre and devising. Four units will be delivered each year, culminating in the Performing to an Audience unit, which provides you with the opportunity to apply all your learning over the two years in a final, full-scale showcase production.
