Will I have to pay fees?

You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course).

We will help you to develop your performance skills including voice and speech, singing, movement and musical theatre. Workshops will also be provided by visiting performing arts professionals.
