Our Behind The Scenes Work Weeks are exciting opportunities 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.

The courses have been designed in response to the large number of requests that we receive for school and college work experience opportunities, unfortunatley we are unable to accomodate work experience outside of these weeks.

We offer two different BTSWW each year.

1. A week for 16 to 19 year olds (excluding Year 11 and undergraduates) 
Moday 09 – Friday 13 January 2017 

2. A week for 14 to 16 year olds (Year 10 & 11)
Monday 10 – Friday 14 July 2017

The application process for BTSWW 2017 is now CLOSED. The application process for BTSWW 2018 will open in Autumn 2017.

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+).
