Overview - BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Design for Performance
Are you creative, passionate and ready to experiment? If so, this qualification will set you on the path towards a design-driven career within the creative and performing arts industry. Offering you the opportunity to study and experiment in a range of styles and techniques to broaden your understanding of design-focused production arts, you will gain an insight into the range of career paths available, and enjoy opportunities to gain real experience by working with industry professionals.
What will I be doing?
Working with students of other disciplines, you will provide the design elements for performances, which may include (among others) set design, scenery construction, lighting, costumes and props. The workshops and assignments offered by our project-based learning approach will enable you to try different techniques and approaches within a wide range of production arts contexts to develop your design skills.
In addition, you will benefit from the support and guidance of our creative and performing arts industry-experienced teaching staff, contact with external industry professionals through masterclasses, workshops and visits, a minimum of one week’s work experience each year, opportunities to work with the wider creative and performing arts community within Liverpool and beyond, and, of course, access to our new facilities.
