Did The Course Meet Your Expectations ?

I am so pleased I chose YAFTA when I was looking to pursue a professional qualification in acting. The course has more than exceeded my expectations.

The diploma is run in a very professional way with a really concise and thorough syllabus.

In only a few months I have become totally immersed in the training that is offered.

I’ve found the course to be really informative but also fun.

The diploma covers all aspects of the business ensuring you not only develop as an actor but you also gain the necessary business knowledge and psychological awareness to succeed in the industry.

There are some amazing opportunities to participate in masterclasses with some of the leading industry professionals.

You are mentored throughout the course to ensure you have the best possible chance of success and when I’ve had doubts or questions about the work outside of the lesson days I’ve always had help from the mentoring team.

It’s a really well designed course.

What Is The Best Thing About The YAFTA Diploma?

The quality of the teaching is one of the outstanding things about YAFTA. I’ve found it to be such a great opportunity to be taught by a team of really inspirational people. The tutors have all graduated from some of the best drama schools and everyone has a genuine passion for the business.

We always know we are going to work hard in our lessons but the teaching is done in a very encouraging and inspiring manner and we always leave eager for the next session.

There is always time for personal feedback and I feel that I’ve really developed because of this .

Would You Recommend The Course To People Looking To Pursue A Career In The Industry?

I would highly recommend the course to anyone looking to pursue a career in the industry. As a “more mature” student I was anxious that I may not fit the regular profile and would feel out of my comfort zone but this hasn’t been the case! YAFTA encourages a diverse mix of students in age and backgrounds, I’ve met some lovely people and made some great friends!

There is a real united family feel within the organisation.

The course structure offers the opportunity to train to a highly professional level alongside maintaining family / work commitments it’s because of this I’ve been able to

What Would You Say About The Teaching Staff?

The tutors are simply exceptional! It’s refreshing to have a small mix of tutors each with specialist knowledge. Our tutors all have different styles but each one has a real passion for acting and this is really great to experience as a student . It has really had an impact on my ability to develop and my determination to improve.

Have You Managed To Secure Any Work Yet?

I am only 5 months into my diploma but with the help of the mentoring team in that short time I am now in a position to secure roles.

I feel very proud to state YAFTA on my applications. I know I am receiving some of the very best training available and that industry professionals hold YAFTA in high regard.
