BTEC in Dance

The RAD is looking to set up a Level 3 BTEC in Performance (Dance). We are hoping to offer an Extended Certificate qualification which will run part time over two years (equivalent to one A Level).

The majority of this course will be focused on practical work and there will also be some theory assessments that students will be required to complete. The qualification is aimed at individuals aged 15+ to mature students who have previous dance experience. RAD students also benefit from our strong links with the professional dance industry and with other academic institutions.

Classes are provisionally planned to be held on Sundays at the RAD’s headquarters in Battersea, for six hours each week during term time.

The estimated cost for the course will be £1,500 per year which will include all tuition, external workshops and exam entry fees. Please note that this may be subject to change.
