Advanced Performance Certificate

Advanced Performance Certificate


1 Year



Our full-time, one-year SQA Advanced Certificate Course is designed for any student we deem has enough potential to work at the highest level in the business, but doesn’t meet the age restrictions or academic criteria needed to join one of our Degree programmes.

You will complete your first year’s training with a recognised Level 4 qualification which will allow you to graduate onto one of the TBA Degree programmes for your remaining two years of your training.

This course is delivered in partnership with The MGA Academy of Performing Arts.
