Training Opportunity

Young Technicians 2022-23

We are excited to announce our Young Technicians Course is returning for a second year. We are thrilled to be working with Sylvia Darkwa-Ohemeng and Constance Oak from Backstage Niche to deliver the course in 2022-23.

The FREE, introductory training course offers local 16–21-year-olds the opportunity to develop practical skills in stage management, lighting and sound with industry professionals.

We will prioritise applications from young people in East London that are currently underrepresented in the industry. The course aims to address the imbalance and underrepresentation of backstage professionals from Black, Asian, Global Majority and working-class backgrounds, as well as those who identify as female, non-binary, Deaf or disabled, and those from areas of low arts engagement. We believe it’s crucial to create opportunities for young people to engage with artists that culturally and socially represent them.
