Courses include the Diploma in Performing and Production Arts which is accredited by the prestigious University of Arts London (UAL) as well as an Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts .

Head of school Jane Tudor said: “Over the past year these courses have been re-developed and adapted to support learners’ skills development to progress onto the next stage of their careers.

“Most progress onto drama schools, conservatoires and university, and we have good links with the leading schools. We prepare them for auditions and interviews and support them in the next step in their careers.

“Our industry experienced team includes current lead performers in ‘Oh What a Night!’ award-winning directors and former TV presenters. It helps them become the best performer they can be and gives them a real insight into the reality of this very dynamic, creative and competitive industry.

“We’ve had great deal of interest in the programme and are auditioning for September’s intake soon. We have a lot of talent from right across Lancashire and I can’t wait to see where they end up in their careers.
