Placing students at the centre of its work, Central develops practitioners and researchers who shape the future of theatre and performance across the UK and beyond.Central is committed to:
- maintaining our distinctive ethos as a higher education conservatoire at the crossing-point of higher education, industry and community. This consists of a fluid combination of scholarship and research, industry-related vocational training and research-informed teaching;
- recognition that enhancement of learning is a project for staff and students alike, and that it takes many forms and relationships;
- active encouragement of diversity as a basis not only for an enriched learning experience but also for an enhanced working environment;
- opening doors to our disciplines for new thinkers, makers and practitioners in dispersed and diverse communities and seeking to lead participation in varied but interrelated communities of interest and study.
