TAFE Queensland Acting – A Community of Practice

TAFE Queensland has proudly partnered with the University of Canberra to add a new drama and production major to its Bachelor of Acting and Performance (304JA.2)*degree.

With the addition of the new Major, TAFE Queensland now offers acting and performance students’ two comprehensive streams of study, both on stage and behind stage, over a three year performing arts program.

While the existing advance acting major trains actors and performers of the future, the new drama and production stream will prepare the next generation of theatre practitioners, all under the guide of TAFE Queensland’s team of unique and expert staff.

TAFE Queensland also proudly offers a Diploma of Screen and Media -Performance (CUA51015), and a Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events - Acting (CUA30213), offered as part of TAFE in Schools.

This initiative will deepen the connection between TAFE Queensland’s training, drama teachers and students in our community, helping high school students to understand and engage with acting and the 21st century theatre experience.

Taught by award winning industry professionals, TAFE Queensland’s performing arts program elevates artists’ creative practice through fundamental skills training and specialist knowledge.

Graduates of TAFE Queensland’s performing arts program have gone on to work as actors, performers, theatre makers and arts facilitators, within the creative industries.

Central to the success of TAFE Queensland Acting is the relationship the program maintains with graduates. Staff and alumni come together to collaborate, utilise rehearsal space, access staff mentorship and use the campus theatre to develop and perform self-devised work.

The combination of broad and focused training and education, in conjunction with our ongoing graduate student support, creates a deep and passionate community of practice that is unique to TAFE Queensland Acting.

Students are not simply enrolling into an arts program, they’re enrolling into an extended support network to help them get to where they want to go, well into the future.
