MENTORING – London College of Music (University of West London) Drama & Communications Diplomas

This course focuses on a student reaching their highest achievements with The London College of Music (University of West London) Diploma levels in Acting, Speech & Drama, Verse Speaking, Personal & Professional Communications and Teaching Diplomas.

Studying for a diploma or teaching diploma can be a lonely, overwhelming and uncertain experience to battle through on your own.

Susan talks about her experience;

“When I first explored working towards a teaching diploma, I had no real idea where to begin. I was clueless as to how I should prepare and unsure what was expected of me. The syllabus goes so far, but working towards a teaching diploma is a living, breathing thing.

I really wanted to gain a recognised teaching qualification but had no one to share the journey with. Luckily, I did find a wonderful teacher/mentor who guided me through each of the LCM Diplomas to reach the highest achilleate in LCM which was my Fellowship.”

So if you want to reach your goal of an LCM Diploma Qualification, we can mentor you to reach those goals.

This course is tailored to meet the learner’s exact needs. A minimum of 6-8 months preparation time should be considered for a Diploma. Course fee is €50 per 1hr 15mins weekly session. Mentoring Sessions are delivered either face to face or virtually.
