About Music and Performing Arts

Our well-respected courses and apprenticeship programmes are taught in our City Centre Campus; which boasts state-of-the-art film, dance, music and performing arts facilities. That’s not all though; our Michael Sheen Theatre (officially opened by the man himself!), Mac suites and specialist creative classrooms are also on site.

#YourCAVC

The College has strong links with industry including the BBC, National Theatre Wales, Wales Millennium Centre, ITV Wales and the Sherman Theatre, providing opportunities for work experience and involvement in high profile projects.

#YourIndustry

Over 12% growth of jobs for musicians is forecast across South East Wales, which is 10% greater growth than the rest of the UK (Emsi, 2016). There are over 1,400 jobs in Performing Arts (including musicians) across South East Wales and this is set to grow by 160 jobs (11% growth) by 2024 (Emsi, 2016).

#YourFuture

Our students progress; many directly into employment in the creative industries. Most Level 3 students go on to study at universities across the UK, with many choosing to stay at CAVC to study one of our unique and respected Foundation Degrees in subjects including Performing Arts, Film, Photography and Popular Music Technology
