Curriculum Overview

In the first year we expect all students to develop skills in all areas of performance and to experience skills behind the scenes.  This allows students to discover their true strengths and explore the variety of employment opportunities available in the creative industries.


During the second year, once individual students have a clearer picture of what they wish to do and where their strengths lie, we are able to adjust the units and qualifications to be completed by each student.  Tailor making your learning to suit you!  This is truly a unique aspect of The Jam Academy’s approach and allows students the best opportunity for their future and continuation into Higher Education.
