Yes and No. Not currently in our town. There is a new college being built that opens in September and they already have a college elsewhere and when I look up about that, the person in charge of drama for the colleges seems to be good, but until the building is actually finished and they have their first cohort of students and I can buy a ticket and watch a show, I can't rule it out or count it in.lotsolaffs wrote:Have you got a good local college that offers a BTEC in Acting?
You could then supplement it with holiday courses or workshops. I have been researching this for a good while and it is one of our options. (MT)
There were 2 other colleges around 40 miles away. Unfortunately one of them CAPA in Wakefield is closing after this summer. They were due to move to Leeds and open up a lot more courses, but that has fallen through. Whether they re-open in the future remains to be seen.
The other option is York college and I'm aware their drama department is considered very good, 1 or 2 students from DD's drama department have gone to it.
York/Leeds/Wakefield would all involve a commute and us funding travel costs for 2 years, which I need to plan for on top of anything she does from 18+
She attends a weekly outside of school drama group and will continue to go there also. I have thought about courses in holidays,it's one of the reasons I've booked Tring residential this summer.
