How to find theatre training opportunities

Theatre training for all areas of the industry is more available than you may think. It can, however, be hard to know where to look, so if you’re having trouble finding opportunities, we’re here to help!

We've put together a list of ways you can find theatre training across the UK and ways you can discover the amazing opportunities available on our Get Into Theatre website.

What type of training course is right for you?

Before you can start searching, it is important that you know which type of course, institution and training you’re looking for. Knowing the difference between a short course, conservatoire or university course will allow you to narrow down your choices.

Signing up for newsletters

One of the best ways to stay up to date with the latest training programmes, courses and free opportunities offered by organisations is to sign up to receive newsletters. These can be weekly, fortnightly or sometimes monthly and usually contain a round-up of workshops and more. 

Our Get Into Theatre newsletter is sent to our users who have opted to receive information from us and arrived in your inbox on a Friday. Plus they contain further information on ticket offers and other opportunities available.

Stay up to date with social media 

Do you use social media? If so, following arts organisations and theatres is a great way to be kept in the loop about news and opportunities. Turning notifications on can be extremely helpful and will allow you to get updates on training as soon as they are shared.

Here at Get Into Theatre, we regularly post opportunities on our TwitterFacebook and Instagram, along with other theatre and arts careers advice.

Asking directly

If you can’t find the courses or training you’re looking for then don’t panic! Many organisations have a ‘Contact Us’ page on their website providing contact details or a contact form.  Reaching out to a training provider directly allows you to ask any questions you may have. They can point you in the right direction and let you know about workshops or training that they may be able to offer.
