At the Musical Theatre Training Academy (MTTA), we create a vibrant and energetic environment in which you can explore, experiment and develop in the different disciplines
needed within the Musical Theatre industry.

Lead by tutors with professional industry experience, this programme is designed to prepare young performers for the next steps in this highly competitive profession.

Based at Preston’s College, one of the largest Further Education Colleges in Lancashire, MTTA is based in the Digital and Creative ‘Tate’ building which is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including a versatile 100 seater theatre, rehearsal studios and TV and audio recording studios.


At MTTA our ethos is to help and guide each performer to achieve their highest personal levels and grades, through exploring their creative thought processes and building upon existing strengths to develop new skills.

We recognise that the industry requires continuous training and aim to educate each performer in an aspirational atmosphere to discover the different progression routes within the field. Whether that is university, drama school, or independent training, our goal is to help young performers prepare for every option.

MTTA has a strong and proud history of learners progressing to reputable establishments.


Our courses are accredited by the University of the Arts London (UAL) – a top six world ranking university. Upon completion of one of our programmes, graduates will achieve either a Level 2 or Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts.

The Level 3 Diploma carries the same UCAS points as three A-Levels or a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma, this along with the skills you develop on the programme supports your progression to the best training and education options after college.
