North Devon Theatres offers work experience placements to Key Stage 4 and Further Education students. Placements are usually for one week and offer experience in a variety of different departments and roles within the theatre.
Students on work experience placements with North Devon Theatres also have the opportunity to complete a Bronze Arts Award during their placement. The weeks we offer and the departments in which we are able to offer experience are determined by factors including our programme and the dates required by the majority of schools.
These placements are suitable for anyone with an interest in theatre administration and/or management and usually give an overview of marketing, programming, finance, technical, development and Front of House.
We are unable to offer actor training or any placements in our Cafe Bars as part of our work experience programme.
As part of their work experience placement, students have the opportunity to complete a Bronze Arts Award, a Level 1 national qualification. Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible.
The award is made up of four parts…
Part A – DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS IN THE ARTS
For this section you will develop your skills in Arts Administration. You need to collect evidence of everything you do with our team e.g. take pictures, keep notes.
Part B – BE THE AUDIENCE
For this section you need to think back to an arts event or performance you have recently attended, review what you saw and then share your review with others.
Part C – RESEARCH SOMEONE IN THE ARTS
For this section you will find out more about an artist you admire. You will then create a timeline of this person’s career.
Part D – ARTS SKILLS SHARE
For this section you will lead a creative session. You will have time to plan this in advance and will then write a review about how you feel it went.
