Production & Design at WAAPA wants you!

2 Dec

As folks weigh up their study and training options for next year, it’s a fine time to remind you there are dozens of exciting careers “behind-the-scenes” in the arts, culture and entertainment industries that the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) prepares its students for.

WAAPA offers full-time, specialised training in Arts Management and offers a range of courses across its Production & Design department, including; Costume, Design, Lighting, Props and Scenery, Sound and Stage Management.

Each of these Production & Design courses are structured so that in the first year students complete a Diploma of Live Production and Technical Services in their chosen discipline. There is no ATAR required for applicants into the Diploma but all applicants must be turning 18 or older to be eligible. In the second year of the course students will complete an Advanced Diploma of Live Production and Management Services and in their third and final year students will articulate into a Bachelor of Performing Arts.

All WAAPA courses require applicants to complete an interview and/or audition, or submit a portfolio of work, as part of the selection process.
