The training at Performers College is specifically created and designed to allow our students to explore every aspect of the performing arts industry. In addition to many of our alumni transitioning into performing roles, we also facilitate within our training the opportunity for our students to become the next generation of performing arts tutors, presenters, and leading creatives within the industry.

This versatility of our graduates is a testament to the outstanding training available at Performers College. In a business that is continually evolving it is extremely important to us as a training provider to keep up to date with the leading trends and performance opportunities available to our students.

Facilitated by our industry-active lecturers, with the assistance of the Creative Futures team, our students are guided from the first day that they start their training right up until they graduate. Providing personal career path discussions and expert advice allow us to get to know each student’s needs and aspirations, and advise the best path possible for each individual.


We are able to offer professional performance opportunities which allow our students to experience working with leading professionals and casting directors and in some of the biggest venues in the UK and worldwide – all whilst still training at Performers College. In 2024 our students performed alongside Becky Hill at the Brit Awards, having previously had students back Dua Lipa at the 2021 ceremony. We’ve also had students perform at the 2021 UEFA Euro Closing Ceremony to 90,000 people, and the 2022 COmmonwealth Games Opening ceremony. We have also had students travel to perform throughout the UK, and to destinations further afield such as Dubai, Canada and the USA.

One thing is for sure, here at Performers College we want you to succeed. Our alumni success speaks for itself….be sure to check the vast array of featured alumni and alumni destinations on our website. Our alumni provide constant inspiration for our students throughout their training; their success is our success and pride.

Why Performers College

"It’s simple. Performers College is a centre of excellence, training students for the demands and rigour of the industry. It has a caring and nurturing community, providing not only excellence in training but also in developing independent, self-motivated and disciplined performers. It has an impressive and diverse range of graduate destinations and understands the need for transferable skills to enable longevity of career paths. In summary, it is the place to be."
Nikki O’Hara - Course Leader BA (Hons) Principal Lecturer – Contemporary

"Not only are the facilities and faculty at Performers exceptional, but many of our staff have worked within the performing arts industry in their specialised fields (which I think is paramount), bringing back and sharing their knowledge and wealth of experience with our students to help them understand and stay current, ready for a career in the performing arts. Here at Performers, not only do we look for potential, passion and drive when we audition our potential new students, but we promise to offer a nurturing and supportive environment that will help them grow and support the skills they have already gained."

"The teachers at Performers have a vast range of industry experience at the very highest level of Musical Theatre and Dance. Just as importantly, they are also great teachers! The college has always been known for its outstanding dance training, but in recent times, there has been an increased focus on all aspects of Musical Theatre, and it is the ideal place to develop your skills as an all-around performer."
Andy Rapps - Principal Lecturer – Singing

"In my opinion, Performers college has dedicated tutors with a disciplined and professional approach in conjunction with a friendly and caring atmosphere. We provide cutting edge, forward-thinking tuition, developing students into industry-ready professionals. We help students develop their confidence and self-belief, not just for their chosen profession but for life."
