Overview - BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Technical Theatre
For a full and in-depth introduction to the skills and knowledge needed to run a performance, this qualification will appeal to anyone interested in the technical side of the creative and performing arts industry. Broadening your understanding of technical production skills across the board, 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?
The technical requirements of performance production are extremely diverse, so you will benefit from solid, project-based learning across a wide range of activities across areas such as lighting, live sound, stage management, and scenic construction. Our performance-driven focus will give you a real, practical opportunity to develop your technical skills through workshops, assignments and projects while working alongside students of other disciplines.
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.
