About the NPAs

The SQA National Progression Awards (NPAs) are industry and sector specific courses aimed at developing skills and knowledge in preparation for further study or employment.

NPAs offered by us all sit at Level 6 in the Scottish Qualifications Framework, the same level as Highers. NPAs can also attract UCAS points for those interested in applying to higher education.

RCT's first NPA cohort was in 2022/2023 with all students being awarded the NPA in Musical Theatre. This year, we've added two more courses to our offering: Technical Theatre in Practise and Professional Theatre Preparation.

Entry Requirements

Courses are open to all those in S2 upwards for the 2023/2024 academic year.

Students should have an interest in the relevant area, be committed to working at SCQF Level 6 (the same as Higher) and have a flexible and mature attitude to learning.

Students will be required to undertake some work outside of class / session times and should ensure they have enough time alongside any other commitments to complete this.

  • All teaching classes
