Diploma in Acting
The two year diploma trains actors to work as professionals in a modern, industry-relevant environment. Students will be able to undertake the rigours of a professional career having developed sound skills and techniques in acting and performance.

Students will develop their own robust working process, strong vocal and movement skills and the ability to create believable and fully rounded characters for stage or screen.

ACT aims to produce actors who are both dynamic and interesting and who can draw on their own, often varied and wide ranging life experiences, to produce work that is truthful and engaging.

The training environment will provide an inspiring, nurturing, safe and supportive environment. ACT has an absolute commitment to guiding each student to discover and develop their individual and unique talents and skills to the fullest possible extent.

The Diploma is open to students over 18 and there is no upper age limit. The course runs for six terms over 2 years and each term consists of 12 continuous weeks. Students are required to attend Tuesday to Friday evening 6.45pm to 10pm and Saturday daytime (times vary). Students will be expected to attend outside of these times when required.

This year is predominantly about the develoImage of Acting Courses in Brighton, UKpment and acquisition of skills. Work will be based around the principals of Stanislavski and Michael Chekhov and students will discover how to work effectively with text and how to create and portray truthful and complex characters.

Each term students are in Project - rehearsal for, and performance of, a play or text given at the end of the term. These performances are in house and to the faculty and an invited audience only (from Term 2). This allows students to be both bold and playful in a safe environment and also to develop the ability to take creative risks before being exposed to public scrutiny.

Students' work is continuously assessed through class work, presentations and one-to-one tutorials. Each term students participate in Self Assessment, alongside written Tutor Assessment and termly 'Crit' sessions with the Principal and Project Director.

Year Two:

Term 4 and 5 projects are presented in external venues and are open to the public. There are also public presentations of work developed in Voice, Movement and Musical Theatre.

This qualification is accredited in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by QCA, DELLS/WAG and CCEA respectively and has formal recognition in a number of other countries. This is a Level 4 qualification on the National Qualification Framework (equivalent to a Certificate in Higher Education).

Within the 6th term students take a 45 minute practical exam which will test your abilities with dramatic text, improvisation, verse and prose. As well as demonstrating your acting abilities you will also have to demonstrate the ability to discuss your work and working process.

On graduation you will receive both your ACT Diploma Certificate and your Trinity Guildhall Diploma Certificate. Holders of Trinity Guildhall Associate Diplomas (ATCL) are entitled to wear an academic gown.

Upon completion of the Workshop, every tutor submits a written evaluation of each student's potential in their discipline. Students then attend an individual feedback session and interview with the Principal. This process allows us to determine a candidate's suitability for training and, in the case of successful applicants, which course is most appropriate for their existing skill level.

Foundation In Acting:
Foundation aims to bridge the gap between a basic understanding of drama and performance and professional training. Building on people's natural abilities, the course is an ideal forum in which to discover each student's unique creative potential. The course is designed to develop a balance of skills in an atmosphere where the student can work freely, safely and confidently with professionals who care.

Students will have the opportunity to develop skills and techniques in acting, movement, voice and singing. Students will explore the use of dramatic language in a range of contexts to help free their expressive abilities and extend their range. The skills acquired will be applied to rehearsals where students will be working on termly projects and with a professional director towards a final public performance.

Foundation aims to equip those students who wish to pursue actor training at Diploma level but lack the necessary experience with the fundamental tools, techniques and understanding for progression. It will also suit those students who wish to broaden their knowledge and practical skills in acting and drama but who do not necessarily wish to purse a professional career. Foundation has also proved to be beneficial to those wishing to extend their training into a broader context such as Drama Therapy, Teaching or Training.
