Theatre Royal Bath have scheduled their Junior Apprentice week for 5th – 9th July 2021.
The egg theatre is committed to providing meaningful and fulfilling work experience placements, internships and apprenticeships in a creative environment.
Our unique Junior Apprentice Programme offers a week of workshops and talks from industry professionals that give students a practical introduction to the range of careers housed in a producing theatre before furthering or continuing their studies, or seeking employment in their chosen field.
The Junior Apprentice Programme is delivered over five days, culminating in an event – conceived and produced by the young people.
This week will go ahead so long as the government restrictions allow.
What are the entry requirements?
Generally, successful students are on a GCSE/A-level course in Drama and Theatre Studies, Technical Theatre or Arts Management. Alternatively we will consider applicants with relevant practical skills, a good knowledge of the area of interest and some theatre experience.
Due to Covid-19, this year we are supporting a Virtual Work Experience programme at KGA. If you apply for this in-person work experience and are accepted, you will need to apply for school absence. Please note that you will be under Parent responsibility during this time and the school will not be able to accept responsibility for you during this period.
Attached is the Work Experience Guide and the Work Experience Application Pack.
We will only be opening 15 spaces so we can adhere to social distance rules that may still be in place at that time.
