West Cheshire College is launching a new course for students to run their own theatre and event production company

The Higher National Diploma (HND) in Performing Arts (Pathways in Events, Technical Theatre, Drama & Dance) has been designed to be a stepping stone into employment, university or drama and dance school.

Students will have the opportunity to create, organise and manage performances and events including musicals, drama, ballet, dance, music gigs, fashion shows and conferences.

As well as being involved in the production company, students will also have the opportunity to perform in productions as well as having the chance to complete work experience.

Angie Berwick, HND Performing Arts Tutor at West Cheshire College, said: “The course is a first for the area and a fantastic experience for students as they’ll gain hands-on experience of running a real-life production company.

“Students will have the opportunity to run a series of events in the College as well as work for external companies during placements. The combination of the two means they will develop a wide range of experience as well as expanding their network of contacts.”

For more information about the course which will start in September call the College hotline on 01244 656555 or visit www.west-cheshire.ac.uk.
