An exciting work experience opportunity for young people aged 14 - 19

You'll spend a week observing, learning from and working with the professionals behind the scenes at the Royal Exchange Theatre.

These FREE courses have been designed in response to the large number of requests that we receive for school and college work experience opportunities.

We offer two different BTSWW each year.

1. A week for 16 to 19 year olds (excluding Year 11 and undergraduates) 
Monday 15 - Friday 19 January 2018

2. A week for 14 to 16 year olds (Year 10 & 11)
Monday 9 - Friday 13 July 2018


THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR THE 2018 BEHIND THE SCENES WORK WEEKS IS NOW CLOSED.

Unfortunatley, we are unable to accommodate work experience outside of these weeks.

Unfortunately, we're not able to offer individual work experience to adults. However, we really welcome support from volunteers and if this is something you would be interested in then please visit the website here. Volunteers could get involved with anything from assisting at the Information Point, welcoming visitors to the theatre and providing information and support to members of the public (must be aged 18+).
