The Australian College of Dramatic Arts is nationally accredited to teach Certificate III in Acting (Screen) course through VET in Schools
What is ACDA?
The Australian College of Dramatic Arts (ACDA) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). We specialise in delivery of the nationally accredited 22307VIC Certificate III in Acting (Screen) course, solely for VET in Schools (VETiS). The course provides skills, knowledge, attitudes and training for acting in film and television. We have designed this training for those with strong intentions of pursuing acting roles or work in related fields. Through the course, we provide skills and knowledge in a broad range of tasks relating to film and TV. Skills and knowledge attained will be transferable to other industries and workplaces.
What do we do?
We have packaged the new course with Units of Competency and tasks that are up to date and in line with current required skills and knowledge in this industry. Changes have been made to the course upon the belief that education improves economic and social development. Young people need to equip themselves for changes in the world of work. We are offering students the opportunity to develop skills that will not only equip them for acting but for any workplace situation.
How do we run?
The Units of Competency are delivered in a manner that will require both theory and practical works. Students enrolling in these courses do so because of the artistic and practical components involved. Every two weeks the students complete filming tasks. This facilitates the practical side of the course, and assists students becoming familiar with being in front of camera. This has meant that there is an increase in confidence that develops through the years. This confidence does not always equate to acting talent but does equate to an increased personal confidence and the ability to communicate more professionally.
