We are delighted to announce our partnership with Lewisham College to bring about a new creative and performing arts provision.

This new provision includes a range of courses for 16-19s, which are designed to nurture young creatives and performers to develop skills in performance, production, art, and design.

Asfa Sohail, Principal of Lewisham College, said: “At Lewisham College, we are always looking to offer courses that will help our students fulfil their potential and become well-rounded professionals. I am very excited to announce the introduction of a new Creative Arts provision at Lewisham College, with courses designed to equip our students with the knowledge and skills they need to progress into their chosen career path and excel in the creative industries.”

We are working in conjunction with the college and have 30 students enrolled this academic year. There are still places available, and students are encouraged to apply now for an immediate audition. Students need to be aged 16 – 19 years old and live in or near the borough of Lewisham with an interest in creating art, props, soundscapes, lighting design, acting, singing, and dance.

These courses include skills to build a career in the arts and the opportunity to apply for a higher education degree or foundation course at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance and apprenticeships or entry-level jobs in the creative sectors once they have completed the year’s course. Innovative art and design courses have also been launched to develop skills and talent, underpinning many jobs across the creative and cultural industries.

Clarie Middleton, Principal of Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, said: “We are delighted to reconnect with aspiring young professionals in the borough of Lewisham, and these courses allow a new generation to access further education and to explore career opportunities within the creative sector. By basing some of our classes at Lewisham College, Rose Bruford College staff will be on hand to run masterclasses in lighting, sound operation, acting, and singing for 16 + year olds. We are excited to be at the college and look forward to seeing a lot more of the talent that the young people of Lewisham have to offer.”
