We offer a range of professional development opportunities, including work experience, apprenticeships and placements.
Work Experience – Week Long Placements
We support local young people aged 16+ in providing work experience opportunities. This is a rolling programme that offers young people the chance to engage in a work based placement designed to give the student basic knowledge and skills for working in the theatre industry.
Apprenticeships at the Belgrade Theatre are aimed at non-graduates and offer a unique opportunity to gain a wide range of transferrable skills which can be used in later employment, as well as a greater understanding of the theatre industry.
For more information on what Apprenticeships we are currently recruiting for, or for any other work opportunities, please go to our Job & Opportunities page.
Graduate & University Student Placements
The theatre offers longer placements to students aged over 18. Placements are usually connected to a specific department relevant to the student’s course, to enable them to gain experience on graduation. Students must apply by CV and covering letter.
“Whilst I worked at the Belgrade, there was so much support and a genuine interest in how I was progressing. There was never a dull day and I felt very lucky to be part of one of the most interesting, fun and diverse apprenticeships around.”
