A FULLY-FUNDED performing arts BTEC course has just 10 places left to fill by the end of this week.

The course at Bellingham Gateway Youth & Community Centre is designed for students who are not in employment, education or training and requires no entry qualifications or experience.

Aimed at 16 to 18-year-olds, the 20 week course promises a BTEC Level 1 Diploma in Performing Arts, a West End theatre trip, filmed live theatre performance, access to industry professionals and the chance to write for and act in a short film.

The young people will be in full-time education so should not currently be in college elsewhere.

Let Me Play recruiter Zoe Leveque said: "We had a very successful run last term and all our ex-students have entered work based apprenticeships or further training as a result of completing our course."

Those interested in the course, which starts on February 10, should contact Performing Arts NEET Recruiter, Ms Leveque as soon as possible on zoe@letmeplay.co.uk or 07904 808 347.
