What is Widening Access to the Creative Industries

Widening Access to the Creative Industries (Production and Performance) is run by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on behalf of FOCUS West and offers tailored support to secondary pupils who are interested in progressing in the performing or production arts.

Who we work with

This programme works with pupils from FOCUS West schools who have an interest in progressing to college, university or higher education institutions. A list of the 37 FOCUS West schools can be found here.

What we offer

Specific interest in courses relating to the performing arts industries will be supported through participation in this project. This includes music, drama, dance, film, television, technical and production arts (e.g. costume, sound, light or set design, and stage management).

Royal Conservatoire staff, in consultation with partner colleges and universities, will engage with all FOCUS West secondary schools to deliver the activity described on these web pages.
