The Level 1 Award & Diploma in Music, Performing & Production Arts provides opportunities for students to explore, develop and test their creativity while enhancing self-confidence and revealing the potential career demands and opportunities within the sector.

Both qualifications draw upon established approaches to teaching, learning and assessment that are successfully proven to appeal to and engage students seeking practical study over a more academic study route.

They follow a similar structure to our Level 2 Award and Diploma in Music Performance and Production and Level 2 Award and Diploma in Performing and Production Arts so can be delivered alongside these qualifications easily.
