Australian Speech & Drama Academy (AS-DA)

'Taking Language into the Future'

  • Trinity’s graded acting and speaking exams provide a structured yet flexible framework for progress, which encourages learners of all levels and abilities to demonstrate their skills in performing and speaking through engaging with as wide a variety of performance activities and texts as possible. 
  • The exams assess performance and speaking skills through face-to-face practical assessment. 
  • They offer learners of any age the opportunity to measure their development as performers against a series of internationally understood benchmarks, taking them from beginner level to the point where they can progress to entry for Trinity’s performance diplomas, higher education or employment.
