What is a Training Professional?

Training Professionals have commitment, flexibility, passion, dedication, curiosity, discipline, courage and imagination. They are robust, resourceful, determined, creative and have a willingness to achieve. If you think this is the profession for you, your talents will be nurtured and your abilities will be developed to the highest degree.

Training Professionals have a sense of why they want to be a performer, they are something of an entrepreneur, they have set their career goals and now have the skills to make work, as well as be a performer for hire, and they are a spokesperson for their art.

We believe the key to sustaining a career is to be a performer who can create their own work.  A multi-track approach to training is crucial in readying students to be resourceful and dynamic in their post-graduation lives.

“I couldn’t recommend a better school or course. The support system and the way it’s sculpted for each individual makes you feel so validated as a person. The intense training is everything you could hope for.”
Darrion Frazer, BA (Hons) Performing Arts
