Working in performing arts with Level 2 qualifications such as BTECs or GCSEs
You could work in any area in performing arts: on stage, behind the scenes or with the public (front of house).
But you will need to get experience to move away from roles as a trainee, assistant or understudy. You will need talent, confidence and practice before you find work as a performer. Behind the scenes roles require practical, creative or technical skills. Working front of house requires good communication and a friendly manner.
My role is to devise, plan, initiate and deliver creative opportunities for schools, communities, young people and adults.
