Trinity College London launches "Acting for Screen" qualification!

Trinity College London have recently unveiled their latest Drama qualification, “Acting for Screen”, which will help learners develop their vocal, physical, and character skills, alongside the technical skills of performing for camera. 

Whether you're an experienced stage actor or a passionate newcomer, this qualification is tailor-made to help you shine in the rapidly growing world of screen acting.

What can you expect from the Acting for Screen exams?

Be assessed on key industry skills

Trinity’s Acting for Screen exams assess skills that sit at the heart of this rapidly growing industry. Whether a trained stage actor or enthusiastic newcomer, the exam format reflects and develops industry-aligned skills essential for auditions, showreels and self-taping.

Develop core screen acting skills through performance tasks

Performance tasks help candidates develop core screen acting skills, such as creating convincing performances, expressing character emotions and mastering dialogue. They also build technical abilities for maintaining eyeline and adapting to different camera angles. Ident and Playback Review tasks allow candidates to present directly to the camera, a vital skill in the digital age. Playback Review aids students in refining their performances by reviewing recordings during preparation.

Select personalised material for authentic screen performances

Candidates choose to perform material specifically written for television or film, their choices can reflect their own interests, culture, and playing age. The tasks can be filmed on a smart phone or camera with no editing required and uploaded to our submission platform.

Foster confidence and reflective learning

Acting for Screen exams are designed to enable candidates to perform confidently on screen, whilst developing communication skills and the ability to reflect on their learning process.

The Acting for Screen exams are available to solo candidates, and are recognised on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) at Levels 1 2, and 3. The highest level, Screen 3 is on the UCAS tariff (with tariff points subject to confirmation in March 2024). 

It also provides great flexibility, allowing you to choose performance material that suits your interests and playing age. It’s also digitally assessed, meaning you can submit work when you’re ready!

The qualification will also help you develop other skills, such as:

  • Creativity 

  • Performance and presentation skills

  • Verbal and non-verbal communication skills

  • Organisational skills

  • Critical thinking

  • Metacognition
