Level 3 Diploma: Collaborative Performance Project
During this project, students were required to work collaboratively to create a piece of work based upon this theme; ‘This is Now’. They needed to decide collectively upon the direction they would like to take the project, how to assign roles and contribute to the devising process, and how they intended to present their work online. The aim was to explore and challenge their technical, performance and creative skills. All students would have personal aims and objectives, alongside their collective vision for their final performance piece.
Level 3 Extended: Final Major Project
Our second year students engaged in a personal project relating to a specific aspect of their training. They were required to take responsibility for their learning and use appropriate research to assist project progression. They could choose to work independently or collaboratively to explore their ideas and negotiate means of presenting their work. Students were able to evaluate the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired throughout the course and apply this to their final projects.
Foundation Degree: Specialist Discipline Skills
As a culmination of all skills and knowledge developed during their first year of the degree, students chose a specific area of interest to focus on during lockdown. They were required to identify sources to inform the development of their project to assist their artistic and creative development of specialist skills. Students were expected to investigate various practitioners and explore their chosen topic, then test the application of techniques to create a final product. All projects were negotiated to ensure each student could present their work in a format best suited to them and the resources available.
