OCN Accredited Arts Training

The Playhouse was the first Art Centre in Northern Ireland to gain Open College Network (OCN) accredited centre status in 1997, and each year we help more than 500 people achieve OCN qualifications in the arts. Our training emphasises a practical, hands on style of learning, and is suitable for all abilities from those with no qualifications to University graduates. We have worked with long term unemployed, prisoners, lone parents, young people at risk, homeless, people with literacy deficit and disabled people.
