Units are assessed throughout the course and both internally and externally moderated.

Professional Opportunities top

You can progress onto the BTEC Level 3 Music Performance.

You will gain industry experience by performing in numerous shows both internally in our performance venue as well as externally at music venues around the borough. 

Each year there are workshops and masterclasses with professional musicians from the industry. Recently we have had Steve White (Paul Weller, The Who and Oasis), John Waugh (The 1975) and Yolanda Charles (Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams, and Nicole Scherzinger) into the department to chat and play for the students.
