The Certificate II in Performing Arts is designed to be delivered in urban, regional and rural areas to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander high school students as a preparatory program for applying for enrolment at ACPA.

The Certificate II is currently being delivered by two Far North Queensland secondary schools and is available for licence to any ACPA approved school or community arts RTO.

Expressions of interest in delivering the Certificate II in Performing Arts should be directed to the ACPA Artistic and Training Director.
