Junior Conservatoire of Production

The Junior Conservatoire of Production is a three-year programme which offers bespoke training to talented young artists and technicians at Scotland’s national conservatoire. Theatre production is an area of skill shortage in Scotland and this programme aims to address this and train young people for a successful and creative career.

Each Production student in the Junior Conservatoire will be given a tailored timetable which will cater to their interests and areas of development. You will be given opportunities to learn more in a range of subjects across the technical and production arts, including set and costume design, prop making, set construction, scenic art, costume, stage management, lighting, sound and stage technology.

At the end of each year, students can present their work either in an exhibition or on a production to demonstrate their progression over the year.

Junior Conservatoire students will gain a comprehensive insight into the world of theatre production and by the end of your studies, you will be working at a high-quality standard and consider applying to full-time production studies.

Entry to the programme is by interview only and we accept a small number of students each year into the programme to allow us to focus our teaching on each individual’s development.

The programme runs across the Scottish academic year from August to June, and there are two comprehensive levels of study available depending on your ability and experience. Many students who graduate from our programme go on to study as undergraduate students at the RCS in either the BA Production Technology Management or BA Production Art and Design.
