-Development of key skills that prove a student’s ability in Performing Arts such as reproducing repertoire or responding to a stimuli.
-Processes that underpin effective ways of working in the Performing Arts, such as developing ideas, rehearsals and performance.
-Attitudes that are considered most important in the Performing Arts, including personal management, organisation and communication.
-Knowledge that underpins effective use of skills, processes and attitudes in the sector such as roles, responsibilities, performance disciplines and styles.
