Yes. We offer a 5 day work experience placement for pupils aged 14yrs + at the New Theatre or St David's Hall. Placements are offered following completion of an application form that can be downloaded from the website, and a practical workshop.
How many Work Experience pupils can you take?
We can accommodate up to a term (1 at a time in each venue). The deadline for applications will be posted on the website. Any applications received after this deadline will not be considered.
How far in advance do I need to apply?
The earlier, the better. The deadline and workshop will always be a term in advance, so anyone who is unsuccessful will still have time to find an alternative placement.
