TheatreWorks offer optional LAMDA examinations and qualifications as an independent mark of achievement which is recognised by Local Education Authorities (LEA) and the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA).

LAMDA Examinations is accredited as an Awarding Body by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) in England, and the corresponding regulatory authorities in Wales (ACCAC) and Northern Ireland (CEA).

The LAMDA qualifications listed below are accredited by QCA, ensuring transparency, consistency and fairness. This means that they are now part of the National Qualifications Framework and equate with other qualifications within the sector.

 

 

 

Group LAMDA Examinations

LAMDA Examinations in Musical Theatre for Group Examinations are designed to
develop the skills necessary to communicate the dramatic content of musical text in
an ensemble. The emphasis is on performance and presentation rather than on the
study of musical theatre as a whole.

Candidates who prepare themselves appropriately will develop:
1. - Interpretative skills
2. - Technical skills
3. - Interactive skills

These examinations offer candidates the opportunity of sharing responsibility for the
performance and therefore the group, not the individual candidate, is assessed.
This means that the specification format does not include ‘Learning Outcomes' or
‘Level Descriptions' as are given in the Solo/Duo examinations for individual
candidates to assess the skills, knowledge and understanding of the individual.
Group Examinations are open to all individuals regardless of age.

The most popular exams that TheatreWorks Students take are below, we specialise in Music Theatre exams for both group and individuals.

These examinations also provide candidates with the opportunity to develop skills
which support the delivery of dramatic text and devised performance.

Graded Examinations in Drama: Acting (Solo/Duologue/Combined) are designed to
