ATCL Performing (Speech and Drama)

At ICAT, preparation for this qualification is embedded into the course structure of the Two Year Professional Acting Course.

This qualification encourages candidates to prepare and perform a programme at a level that reveals professional potential. They will achieve performance standards which are comparable in the UK with other qualifications available at Level 4 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework or the first year of degree-level study.

LTCL Performing (Speech and Drama)

At ICAT, preparation for this qualification is an extension of the Two Year Professional Acting Course. This extension is three more terms of the same time commitment.

This qualification encourages candidates to demonstrate aspects of professional competence in performance. Performance standards are comparable to other qualifications available in the UK at Level 6 in the Qualifications and Credit Framework or the final year of an undergraduate degree. Candidates are encouraged to be thoughtful, reflective performers able to respond to direction, to interpret and to innovate.

FTCL Performing (Speech and Drama)

At ICAT, a candidate may apply for FTCL after completing the LTCL or be having Approved Prior Learning.
This qualification gives opportunities to candidates to demonstrate evidence of mastery and consolidate their experience as a performer. Candidates are encouraged to be reflective practitioners able to undertake a wide range of responsible roles in a variety of professional situations in theatre and would show comparable outcomes to other qualifications available in the UK on the Qualifications and Credit Framework at Level 7.
