CTEC Performing Arts

CTEC Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Performing Arts

Who are these qualifications for?

These qualifications are for learners who want to continue to study Performing Arts through applied learning to progress to Higher Education or professional vocational training. The qualification is not just about being able to perform on stage; it will provide learners with the skills, knowledge and understanding to progress into Higher Educational or professional vocational training on a Performing Arts programme or a specialist performance degree, or to support their progression to Higher Education programmes in other subjects.

 

What do these qualifications cover?

Everyone will study the following mandatory units:

  • Prepare to work in the Performing Arts sector
  • Proposal for a commissioning brief
  • Influential performance practice
  • Arts Administration
  • Original performance (Extended Diploma only)

These units will give learners skills, knowledge and understanding of Performing Arts in wider contexts, including the way the sector works, job roles, progression opportunities, how to build strategies for sustaining a freelance career and how to plan and develop projects. Leaners will study the work of Performing Arts practitioners and learn how to demonstrate practical ideas for performance.

In addition to the mandatory units, learners will choose to study one of five pathways depending on the further study or career path they wish to pursue. Each pathway has a mandatory unit plus optional units that they can choose from.

 

Pathways

In addition to the mandatory units, learners will choose to study one of three pathways. These are:

  • Acting pathway
  • Dance pathway
  • Music pathway
  • Musical Theatre pathway
  • Theatre Production pathways

 

How is the qualification assessed?

These qualifications are assessed using a combination of:

  • External assessment, set and marked by OCR
  • Internal assessment, where the teacher assesses learners’ work which is externally moderated by OCR

 

How are these graded?

Every unit achieved will be graded as pass, merit or distinction. Qualifications are graded using a Pass, Merit, Distinction and Distinction* structure.

 

Does the qualification carry UCAS points?

Meaningful Employer Involvement

All students must undertake meaningful activity involving employers during their study. Meaningful employer involvement is when:

  • Learners undertake structured work-experience or work placements that develop skills and knowledge relevant to the qualification.
  • Learners undertake project(s), exercise(s), and/or assessment set with input from industry practitioners.
  • Learners take one or more units delivered or co-delivered by an industry practitioner. This could take the form or master classes or guest lectures.
  • Industry practitioners operate as ‘expert witnesses’ that contribute to the assessment of a learner’s work or practice, operating within a specified assessment framework.
