TALENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (TDP)

The Talent Development Program (TDP) is a program specialised individual education plan for school aged students in Years 12  who are driven and working for a career in Performing Arts. APAN is an education focused institution that values the importance of education whilst acknowledging that intense training in performing arts is necessary for students to advance in the Entertainment Industry. This includes both specialised training and performance opportunities.

Main Objectives of the Talent Development Program

  • To value and support education and the individual learner's needs
  • To extensively support and nurture young students
  • To continually deliver state of the art performing arts training
  • To offer performance opportunities throughout student's time at APAN Academy
  • To develop strong and openly communicative family relationships

SCHOOLING:

Following acceptance into the Talent Development Program students are then required to apply to enrol in the School of Isolated & Distance Education (SIDE). It is each TDP student's own responsibility to liaise with SIDE; this includes attending the onsite campus one morning per week to meet teachers, gain support and receive new homework and assignments. SIDE and APAN will liaise where required to ensure that timetables do not clash and that schooling is a primary focus. Education is a high priority at APAN; students are expected to maintain their grades whilst enrolled in TDP.
SIDE information can be gained from: https://www.side.wa.edu.au

SUPERVISED AND SELF-STUDY:

APAN is fortunate enough to have a wealth of knowledge on hand to help with the student's educational needs. When not in specialised performing arts classes the students will have their own workspace including a locker, desk and internet access. This space can be used for school work and qualification theory and provides them all they require to enrich their study life. A qualified teacher is onsite to guide students with their studies; a tutor is also available. The students will have supervised study sessions.

QUALIFICATION:

APAN is a fully registered training organisation (RTO).
While a student is training during the week, they are also working towards a nationally recognised qualification.

Depending on the qualification to ensure that enriching performing arts training is being delivered, studentsmay also receive further specialised training throughout the week.

As the qualifications involve different hours we will create a timetable to determine the hours they will receive.

This is formulated to increase the performing arts training whilst allowing ample time to be devoted to education and theory.
