Film and television performance training for the entertainment industry

From introductory courses to training in preparation for film and television castings, and acting auditions, Cardiff Bay based The Workshop in South Wales offers the full performance training package. 

Introductory courses

The Workshop offers performance training to young people from the age of 9 years and upwards, through regular introductory courses. These coincide with school and college term dates and are held at The Workshop's studio space in Cardiff Bay. Each course consists of ten once weekly practical training sessions. There are three options:
Our objective is to provide students with the necessary performance skills for work in the film and television industry. Students record and observe their work on camera as part of the training process. On completion of the ten-week course, a selection process takes place and students, if successful, may be invited to join The Workshop and continue training. This again requires a once weekly commitment, during which time students continue to receive training in preparation for film and television castings.

Training in performance skills in drama

Our training is designed to produce the performance skills required for work in film and television. We concentrate on developing each student's acting technique, specifically for dramas. 

At the same time, many of the skills learnt can be applied to other areas of media work, such as presentation and interview technique.

Acting training courses

After completing our introductory course, some students will be invited to join The Workshop, and continue with their training. All the courses take place at The Workshop's studio space in the centre of Cardiff.

On joining The Workshop, members receive weekly training sessions in a variety of performance skills to prepare them for film and television work.

The Workshop has approximately one hundred and fifty members. Our students come from mixed backgrounds and provide a culturally diverse pool for casting directors and production companies.
