We are now offering the opportunity for our young performers to take LAMDA examinations. This will be entirely optional and will be open to anyone currently enrolled in our clubs and sessions as well as anyone external who has an interest in performance and would like to develop their existing skills and interest.
The London Academy of Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding bodies for practical examinations in communication and performance subjects. These examinations aim to recognise and reward the efforts of the child as an individual while empowering the child.
Through the process of preparing for and taking these exams we aim to develop key skills in self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas. These qualifications are for all and we hope to offer a broad range of options so there is something for everyone.
LAMDA has been recognised as an awarding organisation by Ofqual, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations in England, and the corresponding regulatory authorities in Wales (DfES) and Northern Ireland (CCEA).
From September 2017 LAMDA’s Level 3 recognised qualifications will be included in the new UCAS Tariff offering a fantastic opportunity for older children aiming to go into higher education.
THE EXAMINATIONS ON OFFER ARE AS FOLLOWS:
* Introductory Examinations
Three basic exams exploring poetry and conversation skills designed to introduce the exams structure. These will be aimed at our younger actors just starting out.
* Communication Examinations
Develop a clear speaking voice, good body language and self-confidence by exploring spoken English.
* Performance Examinations
These examinations build communication and life skills while also helping to develop team-working abilities.
