Belgrade LifeStage: The Belgrade Theatre’s unique enrichment and work related learning programme for secondary school students.

In September 2016, we were delighted to unveil Belgrade LifeStage – a new programme of Work Related Learning courses at the Belgrade Theatre.
Following a period of consultation with local teachers and our colleagues from Coventry City Council, we have developed a programme that is flexible to the needs of the individual student and the schools. The programme uses the Belgrade’s expertise in teaching through drama to deliver a range of subjects that help to increase learners’ employability and confidence, fitting with today’s industry needs.

Belgrade LifeStage delivers individual units that can add up to qualifications for those student who are 14+, which are awarded by the Open College Network West Midlands.

The units and qualifications that the students will work toward in 2017-18 are:

*Level 1 Award in Employability and Development
Level 1 Certificate in Employability and Development (for those that have achieved the Award)*
This qualification will cover the following units:
1. Developing Own Interpersonal Skills
2. Performing Physical Theatre
3. Making Choices in Pursuit of Personal Goals

*Level 1 Award in Performing Arts
Level 1 Certificate in Performing Arts (for those that have achieved the Award)*
This qualification will cover the following units:
1. Set and Meet Goals in the Performing Arts
2. Teamwork and Communication Skills for Performing Arts
3. Improvisation Techniques

Each course will be delivered weekly at the Belgrade Theatre by experienced theatre and education practitioners. Learners will have access to our professional facilities and equipment for performances, and will be able to access free or discounted tickets to Belgrade Theatre shows throughout their time with us.

Belgrade LifeStage is designed to offer schools flexibility; learners can be referred for one or two terms, or the entire academic year or more, choosing what best suits their needs. We can also deliver these qualifications in school settings, on a more bespoke basis; please do get in touch if this is of interest.
