“Performing Arts has always been an interest of mine, but I was reluctant to study this as a full time course. I enrolled initially onto the Sub Diploma and through hard work and determination I achieved distinction grades in the Extended Diploma. “I am now completing the HND in Performing Arts - Acting here at the University Centre Grantham College and applying for higher level Drama Schools. This course has increased my confidence, performance skills and has given me a basis for a successful career in the industry.” Catherine Butler
