The BOA Stage & Screen Production learning journey will be a combination of these three areas.
Our Creative Production, Technical Production and Administration & Management courses are open to students entering Year 12 in September 2021. Students will gain Pearson's BTEC Level 3 National Qualification in either “Creative Media Practice”, “Production Arts Practice” or Performing Arts Practice".
INDUSTRY RECOGNISED QUALIFICATIONS
To enable every student at BOA Stage & Screen Production to maximise their career opportunities from the very start, we ensure that industry recognised skills, training and experience is a core element of their learning journey. Through partnerships with leading creative organisations, we create real world projects where students can lead the way and learn first-hand from industry experts.
All students will be given the opportunity to gain an additional industry recognised qualification to run alongside their BTEC. Examples of these qualifications are:
ABTT (Association of British Theatre Technicians) Bronze, Silver, Gold – Awards for Theatre Technicians
COSHH Training (Controlling Substances Hazardous to Health)
NEBOSH Training (Health and Safety at Work)
Rigging Course for events and lighting
Basic Electrical Course
Bridal Make-Up Training
The stage and screen sectors are highly competitive industries which operate on a primarily freelance basis. Not only do workers need to be good at the work they do, they also need to have the flexibility and openness to be great freelancers. Employability and freelancing skills training will be a core component of BOA Stage and Screen Production across both years 12 and 13.
All students will have a personal tutor who will regularly meet with them to discuss their progress and individual career goals and aspirations. Each student will develop a Learning Journal (Portfolio) which will provide a record of their learning, personal development, work experience, additional qualifications as well as their personal interests and specialisms. Students will have workshops, practical sessions and opportunities to prepare and plan for their progression into the world of work.
