The Graduate Actor Training programme is a series of ongoing classes for graduates of the BA (Hons) in Acting and RADA's Acting Diploma course. Following consultation with graduates, students and staff we recognise the need to provide a space and resource for working actors and those who have had a break from work to refresh your craft, build confidence and connect with other graduates.

These classes are available for acting graduates of all ages and stages of their careers.

Weekly evening classes focus on core elements of the training with classes such as Singing, Meisner, Improvisation and Alexander Technique enabling you to exercise your acting muscles. There are also specialist workshops on topics such as Funding and Audition preparation.

This year we are pleased to introduce weekend classes to the programme. The Saturday classes focus on specific elements of training such as accent work and scene study. These sessions will be confirmed at a later date.

We are always interested in receiving your feedback. If you have any suggestions for classes you would like to see, please do get in touch on
