The Foundation Degree in Inclusive Performance spans two years and is a full-time course. It holds national recognition as an accredited qualification, offering a pathway towards obtaining a full BA qualification.

Participants of this course take an active role in Chickenshed's diverse and pioneering performance endeavours.

They learn through our distinctive and all-encompassing approach that imparts practical experience across the spectrum of inclusive performing arts disciplines. The course delves into dance, drama, and musical theatre, ultimately leading to the chance to conceive workshops and oversee projects centred around subjects of personal significance.
