Assessment: FdA TTSM
The FdA Technical Theatre and Stage Management is a vocational programme. Students are assessed entirely on their practical work. Assessment follows six ‘rotations’ or blocks of performance throughout the year, where students are assessed on production roles, project work or placements. Students across the programme complete a self-assessment which is an opportunity to reflect on their learning. The final award is based on completing the necessary credit across the programme and the average of marks in the final year for all assessments. The Foundation Degree is classified into Pass, Merit or Distinction. TTSM students receive both written feedback and their marks throughout the programme.
Graduates from RADA’s FdA Technical Theatre and Stage Management can be found practising their professional skills across the industry. Approximately half of the current year group may go on to a third year at RADA to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Technical Theatre and Stage Management. Other graduates go direct into the profession.
