Emil Dale Academy is a funded and private fee paying college.
Emil Dale Academy keep fees for all courses down to a minimum.
Through our partnership with the Knights Templar School, Baldock, students are able to achieve a BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Performing Arts Practice (Musical Theatre).
The Education and School Funding Agency (ESFA) fund 16.8 hours a week for each student aged 16-18 studying towards a BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Performing Arts Practice (Musical Theatre). The fees you pay are for the additional 15-20 hours per week of private sector contact hours which Emil Dale Academy provide under the private sector of the course. These are associated with an additional £3,500 (+ VAT) charge per year, which is due privately to the college. A number of scholarships are available for private sector hours, and these will be means tested.
What are private sector hours?
Private sector hours are the additional studio based hours that Emil Dale Academy offers you throughout your two year course. Private sector hours make up 15-20 hours per week of our three year course. This enables us to provide you with additional contact hours in private 1:1 weekly technique lessons, ensemble singing, guest masterclass, ballet, jazz, tap, commercial, contemporary, acting, hot yoga, personal training, cardio, acting through song, and performance class.
In order to complete your BTEC, it is not compulsory for any student to undertake the private sector hours.
We offer payment plans which spread the costs over 10 months. Many of our students have successfully been granted funding from private companies to help support them at our College.
