CUA30220 Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events
The Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events reflects the role of individuals working in a variety of community-based performance and production contexts, using some discretion and judgement and relevant theoretical knowledge. It applies to individuals who work in small-scale dance, theatre and events environments within the creative industries. Individuals at this level may provide support to others involved in production with limited responsibility overseeing other personnel.

The job roles that relate to this qualification may include community theatre production assistants, theatre assistants, project officers and community theatre performers.

Typical Scouting Pathway
Experiences and learning received by participating in Gang Shows, Showtime and other performances align closely to the requirements of the Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events. Any member of Scouts Australia who has sufficient evidence can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). A typical pathway that enables collection of valid evidence is;

    • Have at least six (6) months Scouting experience and completed the relevant learning pathways.
    • Have completed at least two (2) seasons of the Scouts Australia community performances, Gang Show, Showtime, or equivalent experiences.
    • Taken on some responsibility for assisting in the success of performances.

After completing your enrolment with the Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT), a SAIT assessor will be assigned to you and they will assess your evidence. They may ask for further evidence or have a conversation with you to gather further information about your experiences. After successfully completing your Recognition of Prior Learning assessment, you will receive a Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events (CUA30220).
