Practical acting skills for aspiring performers

Acting exams for learners who want to focus on vocal, physical and characterisation skills in dramatic performance.

Individuals, pairs or groups can perform a range of play extracts from a variety of periods and styles, and engage with devised forms of theatre. The format of the exams allows them to choose from a wide range of options, focusing on the literary and dramatic forms that complement their studies or that they want to explore further.

  • Aligned to professional actor training methods: develop vocal and physical characterisation skills that actors use to create successful performances
  • Develop a range of transferable skills: creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and confidence 
  • Candidates chose performance material to reflect their own culture, interests and identity
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills through practical performance and the ability to reflect on your learning
