 Entry to the Creative Industries

The Faculty has a unique partnership with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, which enables us to offer free and specialised support to pupils wishing to study performance or production upon leaving school. Crucially, this support is not just aimed at those wishing to study at the Conservatoire, but any college or university course that meets the needs of pupils. This includes those interested in

·         Music – performance, composition/arranging, sound  production and music business

·         Acting – stage and screen

·         Dance – contemporary, street, ballet, jazz, hip hop

·         Technical theatre – lighting, sound, props, set design, and construction, costume, make-up

·         Film and television – writing, editing, producing, directing, camera and sound operation


Although the majority of support is offered to S5/6 pupils, there are opportunities for other age groups as well.


For example, Transitions 20/40 offers tuition fee and travel support to take part in Royal Conservatoire workshops, classes and short courses in preparation for audition or interview for training at a higher education level.


This also includes support for applications to the Junior Conservatoire. The JC offers specialist and advanced training for committed and talented young people in dance, drama, music, production and screen.
