TBA Foundation course

TBA Foundation Course

1 Year / Full-time

Our full-time, one-year TBA Foundation Course is designed for any student we deem has enough potential to work at the highest level in the business, but whom we also believe would benefit from an introduction to all aspects of full-time training, to prepare them for the rigours of the TBA three-year, full time course to come.

Unlike most foundation courses across the country, TBA guarantees your training will not end after one year. An acceptance onto our foundation course is also an acceptance onto one of our three-year, full-time courses upon its successful completion!
