The acting industry changed significantly in 2020
In order to progress with the changing industry requirements, we have adapted our YAFTA Acting for Screen Diploma to meet the demands of the post COVID acting industry. We have found that more auditions are being conducted online via Zoom, with actors then required to turn up on set ready prepared. As such, our online interactive Acting for Screen Diploma will be delivered with these industry changes as an integral part of the training.

The online diploma is suitable for those who are new to the genre of screen acting. Historically YAFTA has welcomed students who hold BA (Hons) degrees in theatre or stage performance that wish to hone their screen acting technique, as well as students who are complete beginners, and every experience level in-between.

The course is designed for those who wish to undertake intensive training to equip them with the necessary skills and experience to progress from beginner to professional screen actor within in 12 months.
Next Course Start Date for the Online Diploma - November 2020
Course Content
The course will run for 12 months, with weekly classes on a Tuesday evening and Saturday morning. There will be preparation and study to undertake in between sessions but the course has been designed to fit around work, family and educational commitments.

The diploma is taught by tutors who trained at the world’s leading drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, Central School of Speech and Drama, ALRA and LIPA. Our structured syllabus and assessment process has been designed by Occupational and Business Psychologists who specialize in assessment and selection, specifically the design and delivery of examination processes.

A full breakdown of the syllabus can be found in the YAFTA Acting for Screen Diploma Handbook.
In addition to your acting training, you will undertake a number of workshops specifically related to working in the industry. These workshops will cover:
Audition Process and Technique
Marketing for Actors
Psychological Resilience
How do Agents Work
Casting Director workshops
Director workshops
The YAFTA Acting for Screen Online Diploma is focused on facilitating your development from beginner to professional within 12 months. Students will be required to pass the YAFTA Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Certifications in Screen Acting to be able to achieve the full diploma award. Auditions for the course will take place online.
The YAFTA Acting for Screen Diploma course qualifies students for Equity Student Membership. Students are also eligible for free student membership with the Royal Television Society.
STUDENT REVIEW
Studying with YAFTA gave me two things, a vast tool box that I can call upon in any situation and a space to get it wrong, make mistakes and keep smiling through it all. The industry knowledge I have gained through the diploma and workshops will serve me in every audition and career decision that I make from here on in. YAFTA has propelled me onto a path that I will follow and continue to discover for the rest of my life. It’s exceptional training for living the everyday in the world of film and television.
