OUR AIM

We educate our students to equip them with the necessary skills, tools, knowledge and psychological preparation which are essential to succeed in the film and TV industry

Through an engaging, exciting and collaborative environment, we endeavour to develop highly competent actors who exhibit a proactive and professional attitude towards their career, craft and education. We encourage the development of a number of important transferable skills which will aid students in their personal lives, education and working lives.

We believe that in order to teach acting you must have trained at a high level. All YAFTA tutors are drama school trained, have professional screen acting experience in mainstream film & TV work, are paediatric first aid qualified and hold DBS certification when working with children or vulnerable adults.

INDUSTRY OPPORTUNITIES

Our students have auditioned for, and secured roles in major film and TV productions including; Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Happy Valley, In The Club, Hollyoaks, Holby City, Casualty, Game of Thrones, Homeland, The Current War, Funny Cow, Love Lies and Records, Armchair Detectives, Outlander, Cold Feet, Strike Series, Sky's COBRA II, Last Tango in Halifax and many other productions for BBC, ITV, CBBC, Nickelodeon and more.

Whether you’re a teen or adult, beginner or more advanced actor, our diploma programmes train students to become professional screen actors. Entry to the diploma programmes is via audition only, you can find out more below.

SUCCESS STORY
Before my time at YAFTA I had absolutely no experience of screen acting. I chose YAFTA because I felt the course covered everything I needed to know - not just about acting but the industry as a whole. To learn from industry professions was something I was very interested in. So far these experiences have been invaluable.
