What you’ll learn
This course will teach you not only the skills to become a professional, but how to perform like a professional, how to behave like a professional and how to present yourself like a professional, to ensure you are successful in your chosen future career path.
This course is equivalent to 3 A-Levels and gives an equal amount of UCAS Tariff Points. At Jackie Palmer Academy, we condense your government-funded hours into 3 solid days, to allow students to work part-time, if necessary. If you are 16, post-GCSE’s and have never previously completed a Level 3 qualification, this course is FULLY FUNDED.
We also work in partnership with The Beaconsfield School: https://www.beaconsfield.bucks.sch.uk/page/?title=Admissions+and+Entry+Requirements&pid=228
There is a potential Sixth Form Bursary accessible via The Beaconsfield School, for all eligble Jackie Palmer Academy students: https://www.beaconsfield.bucks.sch.uk/page/?title=Bursary&pid=231
Pathway to career
Most of our graduates choose to progress onto a three year degree programme at an established conservatoire or university. Some students want an extra year of training and choose to stay with us on our Gap Year Course or look at other well-established one year programmes. After Higher Education, many of our graduates have gone on to working professionally in the industry in the West End, on cruise ships, in touring companies, within the commercial dance industry and many other such opportunities.
This course is an additional two days of training, where you get extra dance, singing and acting classes that further enhance your versatility. The current cost for this addition is £3,000 per academic year.
