Bridgwater & Taunton College Academy Programmes

Academies offer students the opportunity to pursue their performance, public service, sporting or media aspirations alongside academic or vocational qualifications, and are a great way to complement your studies at Bridgwater & Taunton College.

Benefits vary depending on the Academy. For example, in Performing Arts you can expect professional rehearsals, numerous performance experiences and the chance to work alongside like-minded students and highly talented, enthusiastic Academy Directors. For Team BTC Performance, you have the opportunity to represent the College in a variety of sports and benefit from additional support and coaching. The Media Academy is for students wishing to pursue a career in the creative industries or enhance their practical skills by working on live briefs. If you’re looking for action, the 999 Academy teaches you skills used by the fire and rescue, ambulance and police services.
