Our Apprenticeship Scheme

Our creative apprenticeship programme is the perfect opportunity for any young people looking to gain on the job experience whilst studying for a national qualification.

I learned so much. Applying for the apprenticeship was the best decision I made to help further my career in the world of technical theatre.

Rowan, 2018 graduate

This year long scheme is run in conjunction with Cardiff and Vale College and the qualification achieved on completion of the course is a Level 3 Certification in Technical Theatre: Sound, Light and Stage.

As well as the apprentice qualification, the apprentices will use the ABTT (Association of British Theatre Technicians) Bronze award as a benchmark, covering as many units as possible during their apprenticeship.

We work with industry professionals to deliver courses such as rigging, electrics, sound and lighting.
