Government reform means that from September 2017, we won’t be able to offer GCSE Performing Arts (and neither will the other exam boards).
However, we’re looking into the possibility of developing a Technical Award in Performing Arts.
Still aimed at 14 - 16 Year olds, it will provide a stimulating alternative to the current GCSE and form part of a suite of new Technical (more vocationally focussed) qualifications. They will count towards school performance tables and students can study up to three of them alongside their GCSEs.
This session will give an update on the progress of the development of the Performing Arts Technical Award, and give you the opportunity to ask questions and help shape the design of the qualification.
