Student Profile

Aiden Condron, Graduated 2014, has been a Teaching Fellow at Guildford School of Acting, and is Senior Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Acting at University of Falmouth.

The course played a vital role in expanding my knowledge. In facilitating an examination of my own practice and giving me an understanding of current issues, informing teaching and learning in vocational training and Higher Education, my time at Central played a significant role in opening up opportunities and preparing me for a viable future in the field.
