Our highly practical qualification is aimed at students who want to progress into a career in Performing Arts with a specialism of Acting. During the course you will work on a series of projects, fine tuning your talents to rehearse and collaborate with others, performing a diverse range of work in front of live audiences. Morley has a long history as a cultural player in the Performing Arts and has a team of experienced tutors who are professionals in their field and experienced in enabling you, as an adult learner, to develop your skills towards employability in this diverse and growing industry. In Year One you will be introduced to the basic concepts and principles of performance through Acting, Movement, Voice, Singing and Devising. These skills are applied in a Devising Project in the third term under professional conditions in a live performance. This year develops risk taking, focus and exploration. If you choose to go on to our second year (the HND) you will continue to develop your acting skills through exploring classical text, and then go on to rehearse a scripted play under professional conditions, which will be your showcase performance to invited friends, family and industry guests. This year develops reflection, rigour and professionalism.
