AMPLIFY is a training and mentoring programme produced by Tangle. Since 2018 it has provided 20+ paid placements, building the skills of marginalised creatives, nurturing new leadership and improving sector representation.
Championing inclusivity, AMPLIFY incorporates both online and work-based training. It is primarily aimed at freelance professionals at any career stage. It is driven by our AMPLIFY community – an evolving cohort of sector support organisations, alumni, Associate Artists and leading industry experts.
AMPLIFY offers paid mentoring and workplace training across 5 areas of practice:
Technical Producing & Construction
AMPLIFY IS BESPOKE, AUTHENTIC AND RESPONSIVE TO THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUALS, WITH OUR BENEFICIARIES DEVELOPING THEIR SKILLS IN INCREMENTAL STEPS, TO A TIME FRAME AND BRIEF SELF-DESIGNED BY THEM.
There are four entry points:
CAPSULE BURSARIES: A ‘capsule’ mentoring session offering one or two hours of time with a selected mentor to start a new process of career development or unlock a specific challenge.
STEP CHANGE BURSARIES: A more structured programme helping to overcome a career step change, with mentoring sessions offered over a longer timeframe.
WORKPLACE EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING: Paid work-based placements on Tangle’s touring shows for alumni who have progressed through stages 1 or 2.
ONGOING SUPPORT THROUGH THE ALUMNI NETWORK: Opportunity for all beneficiaries to join the alumni network, meet peers and industry colleagues through our AMPLIFY COMMUNITY and receive further mentoring and advice when needed.
By devising their own programmes of work, our beneficiaries set the pace for their own futures, expanding England’s theatre workforce with a confident presence and a voice. A long-term relationship with Tangle and the AMPLIFY community will further build sector leadership whilst also championing perceptions of off-stage career potential within UK theatre.
