Understanding BPPE Reporting Metrics For Acting Conservatories: Please note that all figures for "Job Placement Rates" and "Gainful Employment" in the two standardized BPPE reports above refer to *full-time employment* only. Because acting work is by nature overwhelmingly short-term and/or freelance, these numbers are typically low for acting conservatories, and do not reflect the actual number of TOA graduates working in paying acting roles each year.
