Apprenticeships and Traineeships

We worked in partnership with Curious Minds to host two Trailblaze traineeships in 2015, which saw our two successful applicants undergoing a six week Theatre Assistant training scheme, while being paid a Living Wage. 

We are keen to partner with other apprenticeship and traineeship providers to offer more opportunities to local young people in the sector. If you are hosting an apprentice this current academic year and are keen to link up, please contact us.
