Re: MTA college closing

It must be a very difficult time for those students who are half way through their course or were due to start this coming academic year and are now left in limbo. I did read on social media that the college my dd is about to start has offered to take on students. It is another small, personal colle...

Re: 2021 Graduates!

So dd has moved from Chester to London eek! Though she still needs a permanent place to live before her MA starts in October.

Re: Auditioning for 2022 entry

I think it depends on the young person to some extent. My daughter auditioned early. She auditioned at 16 and wanted her auditions to be over as much as possible before GCSE mocks and revision classes. This would be a consideration for those doing A levels too. Ds on the other hand is doing a Btec i...

Re: Auditioning for 2021 entry

Unfortunately it's luck of the draw.

Our Dr didn't charge because it turns out he went to school in the same city as dd's college and used to share a bus with students from there but ther should have been a charge.

Re: Auditioning for 2021 entry

Performers offer the Level 3 RSL Extended Diploma which is equivalent to the Btec just a different exam board. But if you've already done a Level 3 qualification or are over 18 you can't get funding for it.

No, it’s to do with the size of the qualification and Total Qualification Time including credits & Guiding Learning Hours.

Re: Urdang AVT 2021

I'm actually surprised it got funding in the first place as the qualification they offer is only equivalent to 2 A levels and usually they have to be the three A level equivalent. As a private institution it wold be very difficult to get state funding, they'd have had to go through a lot of hoops or...

Re: AGENCY REPRESENTATION AT COLLEGE

My daughter’s college do not have their own agency but any work gained whether performing or not must not ordinarily affect college hours. Permission to miss class must he sought and would not be given lightly. In previous years some students were allowed to miss the very end of the Christmas term f...

Re: 3rd year support

Hammonds graduate show was supposed to be tonight but someone tested positive earlier in the week so everyone is sadly isolating. The teachers have offered to come in on the Saturday after isolation ends so they can at least perform. Dd had two agent offers and has now signed with one. It looks like...
