Fast Track Intensive Training Programme

Fast Track Intensive Training Programme 2017/18

Currently and over the coming years, many job opportunities will be created in the production areas of theatre and the entertainment arts. There will be far more job opportunities than personnel available with the appropriate background or training to fill them. In addressing this short fall, the School has worked with the industry to develop a series of Fast Track enabling programmes.

This track offers candidates with little or no experience in theatre or entertainment arts a training programme that upon completion will provide them an opportunity to join the industry at entry level. Courses in various disciplines are offered 2 levels of intensive learning (Level 1 and Level 2), 16 weeks of each level, totally 32 weeks for 2 levels.
